Abstract Acrylic Workshop with Jan Sitts Dec. 6-9

Jan’s experience and enthusiasm create an atmosphere of fun and spontaneity inspiring new directions and discovery through innovative combinations of design and materials. By combining aggressive textures and unusual mediums with various “raw” materials in the abstract painting we get surprising results. The layering method yields a magnetism that is particular to mixed media. Many techniques, materials, compositions and above all emotion, play off each other in creating the work. Part of the adventure is not knowing where you are going until you get there! You will become thrilled with possibility as you journey through this process. You will learn to let go of painting habits and gain the knowledge of layering textures, colors and feelings while executing shapes utilizing a structure of positive and negative space.

All of the paints used will be waterbased.

Jan is an internationally recognized art instructor and juror, and recently published an art book, TEXTURE COLOR FEELING. All of her workshops are different, so if you have taken one from her it will not be the same!

When: Wednesday-Saturday, December 6-9, 2017. Workshop begins at 9:30 am each day and goes until 4pm. There will be an hour break for lunch.

Ages: 16+

Where: Highland Village Art House
6100 Long Prairie Rd #800
Flower Mound, TX 75028
