2. Arteast Grow with Art Speaker Series

When: February 27, 2018
  • 7:00 p.m.: Meet and Greet
  • 7:30 p.m.: Arteast Update and Presentation 
Where: 255 Centrum Blvd, Orleans (next to the Shenkman Arts Centre), Room 340 (3rd Floor)

GOLDEN Watermedia Demo with Andrea Warren

This free lecture explores all of GOLDEN’s paint lines that are fluid in motion: High Flow acrylics, Fluid acrylics, and QoR Watercolor. Learn unique ways of using the Fluid acrylics, and the ink-like High Flows including staining, pouring, calligraphy, pen and ink drawing, and using them in empty paint markers and needle-nosed Fineline Applicators. Explore traditional watercolor techniques with QoR, and extend that into more contemporary applications: pouring, staining, “white-out” tricks (for saving that uncooperative watercolor painting), washes, layering, and using watercolors for monoprinting. We will cover QoR and GOLDEN acrylics in unique combinations, working with the resoluability of watercolor and the permanency of acrylic. Learn how to take advantage of QoR and GOLDEN grounds to create a myriad of surface options: paperlike surfaces from a Hot Press, Rough and Cold Press watercolor surface to a range of color, tooth and grit. Receive information on working on unique substrates, such as wood panel, fabrics, and more. Finally, learn options for protecting your watercolor surfaces without putting them behind glass, using GOLDEN archival varnishes.

Come with your questions, and leave with a product literature folder and free samples!

Please note that this presentation will be in English only.
