June 22 & 23, 2016
9:30am – 4:00pm
Neilson Park Creative Centre
Enrich the sensory experience of your paintings by pushing the paint out from the flatness of the canvas or panel into delicious relief surfaces we can feel with our eyes, (like work by post-impressionist Vincent Van Gogh through l’automatiste Paul-Émile Borduas to contemporary painter Kim Dorland).
In this two-day workshop, build vivid surfaces in acrylic paintings by developing your skills to create rich and varied textures, sculpt the paint and build up impasto marks. Also learn how to extend the open time so you can work back into the existing paint layer.
Instructor Kim Lee Kho will guide you through creative and technical – and fun! – aspects of working with and modifying acrylics to enhance the third dimension in your work.
Materials fee of $40 (payable to the instructor) includes the acrylic mediums you will need for this workshop, custom-packaged and bought in bulk to save you money and hassle.

Haliburton School of Art & Design (Fleming College)
The most versatile of all paint media, acrylics can do almost anything you want. Through the magic of acrylic mediums you can change the appearance, behaviour and characteristics of acrylics in surprising ways, from pourable glazes to texturized and transparent impasto, layered encaustic-like effects to sculpted surfaces.
In this intensive, materials and process-based course, a variety of acrylic mediums, physical processes and techniques will be explored. You may drip, scrape, scratch, scumble, tickle, pour, squeeze, sculpt, roll, collage, layer, make skins and embed objects. You will also investigate tools - how to select, use and customize them, with particular emphasis on unconventional choices.
All levels and abilities are welcome (including advanced), the only prerequisite is an open mind and an adventurous spirit.
$95 material fee payable to the instructor.
