We’ll be archaeologists and alchemists in this three-day workshop, digging deep to find treasures and turning lead into gold. We’ll work on some pieces from the beginning, and we’ll dig into works you have in progress, revamp your old acrylic or oil pieces, discovering and creating new treasures as we go. We’ll practice the rhythm of addition and subtraction, using many techniques and materials.
In this workshop we’ll be using several methods of incising, pulling back, abrading, and scraping back of layers to reveal sections of previous layers. We’ll experiment with mark-making, using solvents, adding metal leaf, texturing, and using additives. You’ll come away with richly stratified pieces, full of mystery and wonder.
