    Join artist Valerie Allen for two days of using the power of process to create works of abstract art in acrylics. As a Certified Working Artist for Golden Paints, Val will bring an array of acrylic products including colors, gels, pastes, and mediums. This is a great way to become familiar with the versatility of acrylic products and increase confidence when adding new items to your palette.

    Working on 12”x12” canvas panels that you bring to class, Val will motivate you with discussions on developing your visual language through intuitive mark-making, telling your authentic story with abstract painting and cultivating a spirit of adventure with each painting. Three projects will be completed during the workshop simultaneously within an agenda planned to allow for drying time of the thicker applications of gels and pastes. The timeline isfast-moving with opportunity for question-and-answer sessions each day.
