Limited Palette Acrylic Painting & Stencils

Thursday, October 14
10:00-12:00pm

Why limit your color choices when the paint racks are full of colors?  In this class, you’ll discover just how creative you can be using just two complementary colors mixed in various proportions.

You’ll gain experience mixing colors plus creating tints, tones and shades by adding white, black or gray. We’ll also discuss basic design and use stencil work to enhance your work.

We start by using a brush or brayer to lay down a layer of acrylic paint followed by three or more layers of stencil work. You’ll be amazed at the beautiful paper you can create with this technique. Use it as wall art or in collage projects or as note cards. There will be some holiday stencils, too!

This is a class for people of all skill levels. No experience is needed – just come prepared to play! Materials are provided.

NOTE: Participants will be offered an extra class to work on projects using the pieces created; greeting cards, framed collages etc. Additional class date and time will be scheduled during class.”
