Art Workshops with Maureen Brouillette
Abstract Acrylic with Mixed Media
June 6 & 7, 2015 in Dallas
The goal of this workshop is to experiment, have a good time and create a series of small paintings. All levels are welcome. Bring a friend!
Each day will include a brief lecture, a demo for technique, plenty of student painting time and individual guidance. The workshop will end with a group critique.
We are going to create abstract paintings using color, shape, texture and design to create original artwork. In addition to the items on my supply list I’d like to mention that I have been doing monoprints using a Gelli plate. I am excited to incorporate new elements into my workshop demos.
We can also incorporate found papers into our compositions. This might include letters, postcards, tickets, receipts, old paintings and drawings, rice and tissue papers, candy wrappers, maps, gold foil, patterned paper, labels, graph paper, ledgers, vintage books, engravings, stamps. I usually use black and white copies of my collage elements instead of using the originals.
We will use matte medium for adhesive, your favorite acrylic paints for color, plus anything you like to draw with, such as pencil, ink, charcoal, color pencils, and water soluble crayons to embellish our paintings. I have recently discovered black compressed carbon, water soluble discs at Asel that I absolutely love! They are usually in a box near the cash register at the Asel on Cedar Springs.
Time: 10 am to 4 pm. I will be there at 9:30 so you will have time to get settled. We will break for lunch from noon to 1:00. There are several restaurants close by. A refrigerator and microwave are available if you want to bring your lunch.
Location: Workshops are held at the Artisan’s Studio Gallery at 2825 Valley View Lane, Suite 301, Farmer’s Branch, TX 75234. It is just West of Josey Lane and not visible from Valley View, but is located behind the Fruit Market and Auto Zone.
Fee: $150 for the weekend.
