Acrylics are not just substitutes for oils and watercolours! There are wonderful products and methods available that afford exciting new avenues to explore.

Join Diana as you learn how to apply gesso to Yupo to produce a beautiful and different substrate for pastels, acrylics, and mixed media. Discover how to tint and play with tar gel, and use duo-tone, iridescent, and interference colours.

Using new products or re-purposing familiar products can unleash a whole new realm of creative possibilities. Kick start your creative juices as you contrast matte and gloss and play with sparkle and shine. Exploring your potential is re-invigorating and exciting!
