Class Code: JD170729

Workshop fee: $120

Medium: Acrylics / Mixed Media

Saturday, July 29th, 10:00am – 4:00pm

Learn to bring “Action and Energy” to your Acrylic Abstract compositions! You’ll use Line to enhance your Colors, Shapes and Textures in this exciting full day workshop! Joe will show you simple techniques for taking your compositions to the next level. The use of free flowing, creamy, acrylic color in Flo Expression bottles will transform any ordinary abstract painting into a vivid work of “Action” in the spirit of the Abstract Expressionist of the early 1950’s and 1960’s. Join Joe for this highly informative, technique driven workshop in abstract painting on canvas!

Supplies to bring:

Acrylic Paint: I prefer Matisse Structure Acrylics (Joseph DiGiulio Signature Set), but Liquitex, or Golden are also great. Also, bring a 125ml tube of Lukas Cryl Studio in your favorite color (to fill into 37ml Flo Expression Bottles)

Bring Black, Titanium White and at least two of any other colors you have. I will introduce you to my favorite colors and why they are my favorite. (Australian Sienna and Southern Ocean Blue are fantastic together.)
