My last all day workshop held in the beautiful Government House gardens in Regina, Saskatchewan was held this past Sat. We were 2 for 2 on gorgeous painting days. The first workshop was held July 27th from 10 am – 4 pm with a picnic lunch catered by Indulgence Fine Foods and the second was on Aug. 24th, 2013.
The artists are now armed with new techniques. They will be applying these to works they are creating for a group show to be held at Government House from Oct. – Dec. 2013. All of the works are inspired by these new methods and the gardens. It was my desire as their instructor to open their minds to new possibilities available to them with acrylic through the use of new mediums and expressive methods. In this second workshop I demonstrated the following methods:
- Faux Encaustic
- Petroleum Jelly Peels
- And Acrylic Skins
I interviewed one of the student / artists who will be exhibiting to give you a chance to get to know her better. Here is the interview.
