Making Magic: An abstract and illustrative painting workshop with Stephen Lursen
Date: FRIDAY Dec. 9th, 2016.
Time: 5:00pm - 9:30pm
Materials: Acrylic and gold leaf on one 16"x16" canvas (all materials included in the price of the class along with over 4 hours of instruction).
We will start off by creating an organic abstract background using acrylic inks and paints. TO add that special sparkle we'll also add a touch of gold leaf!
Upon this abstract background we will draw illustrative figures or characters to begin to tell a story, even if only in one's imagination. Your character or figure can be anything or anyone and I will instruct you how to draw and paint it WITHOUT ANY PRIOR EXPERIENCE. No drawing skills are necessary as I will show you my "magical" method to create imagery in a fun and easy way. This painting can be seasonal or timeless to suit your hopes and dreams.
Please check out some of the example images to see some of the possibilities. Keep in mind that you are the artist and are encouraged to decide what you want to do each moment of the way while Stephen explains and demonstrates the possibilities. This means that if you want to do the abstract portion and not the figurative or vis-a-versa, you can do that! Your satisfaction is our top priority.
Class size is limited so sign up now while space is available!!!
