Anything But Skin Tones – Acrylics In Layers
May 23 and 24 ( this is a 2 day workshop)
About Charla: Newfoundland born, Kelowna based artist, Charla Maarschalk is known for her large scale gestural Faces that explore the layers of human identity. She is interested in the process of combining thread with paint, connecting ancestral truths to our modern world. The emotive response to the texture, layers and details in her work reveals the story hidden within us.
Course Details: On the first day students will set up and prep their palette and Charla will expand on the importance of colour theory and mixing. You will work on the completion of a small painting guided step by step with Charla using demos and individual feedback.
On Day 2 students will work on a larger painting, using the techniques learned on day one. There will also be demos and individual feedback.
Reference material will be provided for the class.
This workshop is open to all levels of painters and will include demos and step by step instruction with one on one time for students. Class limit is 12 students
Your workshop experience starts the afternoon of May 22nd, when you will settle into one of our Chalets and enjoy dinner with everyone. It is a great time to prepare for the class and get to know each other.
