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 with subtractive methods (engraving, sanding, & intarsia), exploring different grounds, creating acrylic transfers from laser copy prints onto the canvas, creating acrylic skins from paint, and collage with the help of acrylic mediums, additives, and other household materials. The instructor will supplement this workshop with demonstrations. The workshop will also be supplemented with visual aides as well. Like all of my workshops, this will be hands-on!

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).

FYI please bring an apron and/or wear something that you won’t mind having paint on. Accidents do happen!
