Everyone is an artist in this fun, colorful and easy painting workshop. Ivy Stevens-Gupta will show you how to create a contemporary and circular abstract painting with texture using simple color theory principles. The finished paintings can be hung at home or at work. Participants will select several different colors of acrylic paint to create blended color harmonies. Next, white gesso will be applied to fill in the negative space and fix any bleeding of paint. We will practice our technique on hard pressed watercolor paper before moving onto stretched canvas. Leftover paint designs on paper can be used to create your very own greeting cards. Here is what each participant can expect:

• Complete one 8” x 8” painting on stretched canvas. Includes sawtooth hanger for displaying your work and a small container of varnish to seal and protect your painting.
• Create abstract painting designs on paper to take home and make greeting cards (each student will get 3 cards with envelopes). Leftover designs can be made into bookmarkers. Please allow at least one day for the paint to dry.
• Make a 3” x 3” mini canvas painting (comes with an easel for display on desk or bookshelf).
• Gain confidence using gesso and assorted acrylic paints.
• Discover what color combinations work well to design compelling paintings.
• Drinks and snacks provided.
• Participants should dress for a mess or bring an apron to protect their clothing.
• All skill levels are welcome, and all supplies are included!
