Make your artwork sing. This workshop is meant for the artist who has some acrylic painting experience. Create a mixed media painting using handmade Gelli printed paper and acrylic paint. Each student will explore patterns utilizing the Gelli printing process to make their own collage paper that they will incorporate into a painting. Working with basic color theory, Lisette will demonstrate how to use a color scheme to design a unified artwork onto an 8X8” gallery wrapped 1 ½” canvas.
