Painting With Acrylics

Workshops And Classes

Spring / Summer 2017

Painting with acrylics is a wonderful hobby. There are no fumes, the paints dry quickly, you can add a variety of mediums to them so they take on properties similar to oils or watercolours.

I love acrylics and I use them in my decorative painting, like the projects featured below as well as in my mixed media art.

Please check back again as I continue to develop classes for the 2016 Spring / Summer schedule.

I'll be adding more events not related to painting that I think will stimulate your creativity in new ways.


Mixed Media Textured Poppies

Leave it to Willow Wolf to make a bold statement with this simple poppy composition.

This highly textured canvas provides plenty of interest and it's pure eye candy!

Painted on a 12" x 24" canvas, this painting commands attention.  The background plays more than a supporting role to the lovely poppies, it MAKES the painting come alive.

Originally painted in water mixable oils, I am converting it to acrylics, my preferred medium.

SKILL LEVEL:  Intermediate

DATE: Saturday, April 1st, 2017  Thank you so much, this class is VERY full!  :o)  (See the new April 22nd date!)

TIME: 10:00 am to 4:00pm

FEE: 45, includes lunch and beverages
