Limited Palette Acrylic Painting & Stencils

Tuesday, July 12

Have you heard about “master boards” and wondered what that means? A master board combines painting, stenciling and collage on a large surface that can then be cut down into pieces for whatever type of project you are creating. Use it as a note card, postcard, bookmark, gift tag, wall art or as an inspiration for a collage piece.

You’ll gain experience mixing colors plus creating tints, tones and shades by adding white or black. We’ll
also discuss basic design and learn stenciling techniques.

We start with a layer of collage, then use a brayer to lay down one or more layers 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.

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