It is a continuation in a session from session #1 taught last year in that we are continuing with 3 new acrylic mediums! Acrylic mediums are designed to work with your acrylic paints to expand your creative potential. We will explore a new acrylic medium’s possibilities every 2 weeks and apply this to your choice of still life, abstract or landscape subject matter. We will also work with ventilation tape, rubbing alcohol and stamping to add interesting textural effects! As a bonus we will also be learning how to stretch our own canvases!
