GOLDEN Days Workshop #2 Taking the Mystery Out of Mediums!

Posted By Central Art

GOLDEN Days Workshop #2 – Taking the Mystery Out of Mediums!

In this second GOLDEN Days workshop we will be exploring the wonderful and sometimes mysterious world of acrylic mediums.

We will learn the differences between pastes, gels, grounds, and gessos, then break it down even further and explore differences within each medium and how to incorporate them into mixed media art.

We will explore the different surfaces and sheens that can be created and how to use/add color, and how different media work on those textures.

We will use some of the texture gels and pastes to create interesting textures and effects on Strathmore Mixed Media cards and Ampersand panels. You will also make some sample boards using the pastes and gels in your kit to use in the future for your own personal reference.

Your kits will be full of GOLDEN Goodies to make several projects and still have plenty leftover so you can continue to unveil the mysteries of mediums!!

Space is limited and pre-registration is required, call or stop by Central Art and register today!

 When: May 17th, 2019

Time: 2pm - 5pm

Cost: $45.00 per person (no group registrations).

CAS New Workshops - "GOLDEN Days"

Posted By Central Art

Central Art’s “mini” workshops are back!! AND they are NEW & IMPROVED! (and not so “mini”). We have made changes based on what you have told us you want. The new workshops will now be project oriented and more instructive in nature. (Very similar to our Extravaganza workshops). Runtime will be around 3 hours so we have enough time to really explore each product and finish the project(s).

You will receive a kit full of products to complete one or more projects during the workshop and enough left over to continue your exploration and experimentation at home!

We are kicking off the new workshops with GOLDEN DAYS, showcasing.... GOLDEN products. The first workshop will be Acrylic Pouring! on May 10th, 2019 2pm - 5pm at Central Art’s classroom. We will do four pours using Golden’s Gloss and Matte Pouring Mediums, Golden Fluid Colors, and Golden High Flow Colors on Ampersand Pouring Panels, Art Alternative Canvas, and creating an acrylic skin on Plexiglass. One of the pours will be an embellished Geode pour. You will also learn how to create specific patterns using different techniques such as swirl or ring pours and how to create LONG LASTING cells and working “wet on wet”. You will also receive a worksheet with Tips & Tricks, FAQ’s, Troubleshooting, and more.


Fee is $45 per person. Class size is limited to 10 students, so pre-registration is required. Call or stop in and register now before it's full! One registration per person, no group sign ups. (If you have a group that would like to do a workshop, please contact Ann Ebert or Lara at (541) 773-1444 to discuss details and scheduling).
