Art, Lectures & Conferences
The GOLDEN Acrylic Lecture Demo is a fun, fast-paced informative lecture covering a technical review of acrylics and their varied application possibilities. The lecture demo will present information on pigments, viscosities, gels, mediums and more.
Learn how acrylics can be used as grounds for other media, such as watercolor or colored pencil; get key information on color mixing, blending and controlling drying time; and see how gels can be used to modify paint properties or create unique textural surfaces. From traditional to contemporary to mixed media, acrylics
are infinitely versatile. Artists of all levels will come away from this lecture demo with fresh new insights to feed their creative expression. All participants will receive free product samples and a literature packet, including hand-painted color charts.
Hands on Workshop: Acrylic Mixed Media
One of Golden’s most popular workshops. Acrylics are an infinitely versatile medium, and now there are so many innovations that make it possible to create the art you dream of. Using a selection of GOLDEN acrylic products, we’ll create three small mixed media creations on paper. Learn what to put under paint, and how to create washes, stains, and collage. We also cover the use of stencils, paint markers, pastels, and pencils, as well as the creation of encaustic-like effects, and how to use Iridescent and Interference colors to add unique qualities to your work. This is a great place for beginners and experienced artists alike to learn new techniques and be inspired by innovative applications. All painting supplies provided.
Students should bring paper towels and an apron.
