Event Details

In this workshop for beginners on up to professional artists, we will take advantage of the fast-drying nature of acrylics to create translucent and luminous paintings. Expert teaching artist Wayne Jiang of Portland will start with simple techniques using just a few layers, and work up to more complex techniques with dozens of layers. These techniques are especially effective for watercolorists transitioning to acrylic. Specifically, you will learn how to create:

  • Sequence of colors in transparent layering
  • Color glazes to adjust color hue, saturation, and subtlety
  • A different combination of transparent and opaque layers
  • More vibrant colors using acrylic medium and varnishes
  • A transparent painting with the best painting surfaces specifically for you

The workshop, led by teaching artist Wayne Jiang, will include painting demos, student work feedback sessions, and slideshow presentations.
