David langevin treeThis workshop is designed for artists with some painting experience in oils, acrylics, or even watercolors. Acrylic paints are relatively new and how to use them effectively is still a challenge for many artists. Techniques that are successful when using oil paints or watercolors do not often yield good results when applied to acrylic paints. This is because the physical and chemical properties of the synthetic acrylic paints are unique. 

In this workshop the focus will be on learning the specific properties of acrylics and how you can use them to achieve fantastic results. Emphasis will be on mastering the materials and skills that will help you be a better painter. You will learn to master the medium and effectively apply glazes, veils, and impasto layers of paint. Painting demos will also be featured.

Come prepared to take notes, ask questions and to paint with David’s help.
