Workshop on the Versatility of Acrylic Paint by Sandra Albo
Happy Autumn Everyone( although’ it seems more like Winter)
I’m doing a relaxed and fun ACRYLIC PAINTING WORKSHOP at our OKANAGAN ART
GALLERY on SUNDAY, Nov. 26th and MONDAY, Nov. 27th from 9:30am till 3:30 pm
(finishing up at 4:00 pm)
This Gallery is in OSOYOOS kitty-corner from THE WATERMARK HOTEL on Main
Street beside ‘SHOE BIZ’ and ‘NEW LEAF CAFE’ at the stoplight. 8302 Main
It’s the time of year for Beginner’s to find out everything they want to
know about the paint and how to use all the products in a painting.
As well I’ll challenge Intermediate painters to use “paint skins” and
“collage” items in their paintings and iridescent and metallic paint.
We will all complete at least 3, perhaps 4 paintings over 2 days. Bring the
size of stretched canvas that you want to work on. Supply list below.
The FEE for 2 days is $120. We’ll have a fun critique and glass of wine for
courage at the end of the 2 days.
IF YOU WISH TO JOIN IN PLEASE REPLY by e-mail and go into the Gallery to
sign up and pay the fee. There are 10 to 12 spots and they’ll fill up fast.
Come with a positive attitude and you’ll work wonders!
