"Exploring Acrylics--The Other Watercolor"

A Six Week Class with Jane Todd Butcher

at Greenville Center for Creative Arts, Greenville SC

Wednesdays; Jan. 9 through Feb. 13, 2019

9:30 am - 12:30 pm

This class explores many ways to use acrylics in a fluid manner.

Acrylics are actually "water colors," since they are water soluble,

but they can be easier to use than traditional watercolors, may be painted on paper or canvas, and may be more vibrant and more durable.

Artists will explore the versatility of fluid acrylics in transparent and opaque techniques, glazing, layering, and more. We will experiment with painting on different surfaces and combining with other mediums.

Watercolorists may find that combining acrylics with their transparent

watercolors adds richness, helps fix problem areas, and creates new effects.

Member tuition $229 • Non-member $249

"Build A Better Painting"

A two day workshop with Jane Todd Butcher

at Greenville Center for Creative Arts, Greenville SC.

Fri. March 1 & Sat. March 2, 2019 • 10 am- 4 pm 

Learn to plan your painting for success, whether you paint realistic subjects, or you create abstract paintings. Artists will bring their ideas or photos for a new painting.

First, we will analyze your concept to plan your composition. Then put your photos away for a more spontaneous look. You'll plan a color scheme, and use value to give your painting impact.

I will demonstrate techniques for painting various subjects, creating texture, and to further develop your painting. Demonstrations are in acrylic, but watercolors and oils are welcome.

Tuition $185.00
