Join visual artist Julian Peña in playing and manipulating with acrylic paint using mediums and additives. Everyone of all skill levels and experiences are welcomed to join. He will explore different techniques and manipulations using acrylic mediums and additives with demonstrations. We will explore many different ways of creating texture, utilizing special effects paint, and creating sheens on a surface. Examples include foiling with mylar, metal leaf, using rubbing alcohol on paint, “puffing” paint, patinas, and iridescence. The workshop will also be supplemented with visual aides.

Each acrylic alchemist will have canvas strips to use throughout the whole course and materials will be provided, which will result in individual works of art! Why not show off the work that came out of the workshop? You can even share with the art community and post your works with the hashtag #AcrylicLab and #thelabatadas (this will put you in the running for a contest to win a free ticket to one of my future classes).

NOTE: PLEASE WEAR CLOTHES YOU DON'T MIND GETTING PAINT ON! Many of our attendees do not get anything on their clothes, but we want to give you a heads up, just in case :)
