Intro to Mixed-Media Acrylic Techniques with Bill Koeb
This event will be held Saturday, July 22, 1–4 pm, and Sunday, July 23, 1–4 pm, in Studio 2 at the North Carolina Museum of Art.
In this two-day workshop, students learn to explore various aspects of acrylic and water-based media. They work with their own drawings, learning to apply paint using glazes opaquely and gaining an understanding of direct versus indirect painting. We explore how color can be layered to create various effects and how to preserve drawings during the painting process and keep our original intent intact. Some of the materials we use include matte medium, gesso, wash, and colored pencils.
