No Prerequisites. 

Description: Acrylic, vinyl, watercolor, gouache, and egg tempera paints and their mediums provide endless possibilities for painterly expression, and yet few of us ever go beyond the basics.  This one day seminar provides the kind of in-depth knowledge necessary to master the vast potential that these materials offer.  Through a combination of video demonstrations, slides, and discussion, we will explore solutions for working safely, why we should pick one pigment over another, one medium over another, how to produce artwork that will last for generations, and how we can take advantage of recent technological advances.  For example, few people know that acrylics were recently reformulated to dry more slowly and yellow less over time.  Appropriate for painters of all levels.

When it comes to oil painting, many artists never go beyond the basics. Why? Because despite having been in use for 1,000 years, there is little readily available information on the medium. 

This is one day workshop/seminar from 10-4:00PM, scheduled on the second Saturday at the beginning of the Fall and Spring terms.  It is offered through the public programs.  After centuries of use, oil painting is still the ultimate artist's medium. Mastering this unparalleled medium is more dependent on knowledge of its materials than any other. Yet little comprehensive information is readily available, and what is found is often confusing, contradictory, or shrouded in mystery. This one-day intensive seminar on oil painting materials and proper use offers the kind of in-depth knowledge necessary to tame this medium and explore its vast potential for expression. The seminar will also offer solutions to working safely as well as produce artwork that will last for generations.  Appropriate for painters of all levels.
