May 17th             (notice it is not the last Tuesday)

Roy Kinzer from Golden Paints will be doing a lecture and demo.
He will have samples of Golden products as well.
 Watermedia – Mixed Media - And More

2 hour Golden Artist Colors Lecture /Demo.

In this lecture/demo we will explore the vast potential of Golden gel, mediums and pastes. Many of Golden’s products fall in the category of “Watermedia. Come learn the wide range of techniques that they can be used for, from traditional uses, to printing to college and much more. Learn how to extend your paint by as much as 70% and create any desired texture and effect. Did you know Golden acrylic gels, mediums and pastes are great adhesives for mixed media work?

This lecture/demo will also help to demystify pigments. We will compare the slow drying OPEN line with Heavy Body paints. You will learn about controlling drying time, as well as techniques associated with oils, such as wet-into-wet and glazing.

Also we will learn what makes QoR Watercolors (pronounced “core”) a radical new take on an old medium and the first major improvement to watercolors in 150 years! Check out these paints, the colors are so intense!

All participants receive a free packet of Golden samples.
