Workshop Description:

Learn to bring “Action and Energy” to your Acrylic Abstract compositions by using Line to enhance your Colors, Shapes and Textures in this exciting three day workshop. Joe shows you exciting 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.

Artist Bio:

Joseph DiGiulio is a professional abstract painter and cancer survivor from Raleigh, NC. He works for Jerry’s Artarama. He offers free online art lessons and produced several DVD’s that highlight his teaching skills in abstract painting and product usage. He has traveled abroad to help develop acrylic paint lines from Australia to the South of France.

He attended East Carolina University’s School of Art in the mid 1970’s. Afterwards DiGiulio worked in the textile screen printing industry until the early 1990’s. He is presently on the Merchandising Advisory Board for East Carolina University. His work can be seen at the Raleigh Duke Hospital and PNC Plaza building in downtown Raleigh, NC as well as RDU International airport. His latest works are large abstract paintings that reflect his use of color, line, shape and texture. His art takes on the expression of color and dynamics that capture the success of his cancer recovery and the essence of his travels.


Donna Downey Studios Workshops Policies :

Half-day, full-day, multi-day workshops, and special events are scheduled throughout the year. Once you purchase a workshop you will be enrolled.

Due to limited class size, purchased spots for all workshops are transferable but payment is non-refundable. What this means: If you buy a class spot and are unable to attend, and if there is a waiting list of students that has formed, we will put you in contact with the first person on the list to whom you can offer your class spot. If the person on the list accepts, then that person will need to pay you for your spot and once that transaction is complete and both parties are satisfied, we will transfer your spot to the other person. If you are unable to attend and there is no waiting list, we will unfortunately be unable to provide refunds.

Emergency Cancellations : In the very rare event of an emergency or unavoidable natural disaster or act of God, the class may be cancelled. In this situation, all fees will be reimbursed to students in full.

If you would like to enroll in a workshop that has been sold out, please send an email to and you will be put on a waiting list.
