DATE/TIME: Saturday / May 14 / 11am-5pm
We will be working in a contemporary style, so your work will be an abstracted portrait (with guidance!). Tracy will guide you step-by-step, dividing up the space on the canvas with a front view of the face, talking about how the features of the face align as we "rough it in" with loose brushstrokes.
Next we will add collage papers to the areas of the face - this is a great opportunity to add in personal papers like journal pages, maps of places you have been, etc. Tracy has a bin of papers you can pull from as well.
Then spend the day playing with layering techniques using acrylic gels and pastes to create layers of color, texture and meaning. Tracy demos each technique and paints along with you throughout the day.
For beginners to experienced painters wanting to learn techniques in acrylic paints and mediums. This is a fun and supportive class, so you can enjoy a day of painting, combining interesting and fun techniques with the added content of making it about something you love: YOU!
