Creating Acrylics That Glow

Instructor: Lori Sokoluk
Location(s): Vancouver
Topic(s): Acrylic Painting
April 11, 2018 - April 18, 2018

Do you struggle with acrylic paintings that look dull, flat, or plastic-y?
Join me in my studio and learn how to create energy, depth and glow in your paintings.

This workshop will include demonstration, exercises to build confidence with the techniques, then you will work on a subject of your choosing. This workshop is limited to 6 students, so there will be ample time for one-on-one guidance and attention. We will also do a personal review/critique of 1-2 of your acrylic paintings (could be done previously or during the workshop) with respect to the workshop topic.
