No Rules - Brushless Painting
Register by:   October 22, 2011
Tuition:   $110 members; $125 non-members
Materials fee:   $50
Materials list:   Brushless Painting materials

This is the third year this wonderful class has been offered. Take it again or come for the first time and find out what all the fun and learning is about. The artist will demonstrate brushless painting techniques using common workshop tools or kitchen utensils. Processes will include using acrylic paints and other media, stencils, sponges, sandpaper, your own hand.

No rules apply here and we'll give you lots of new avenues to approach painting on wood or other substrates. The hands-on sessions will supply the outlet for your new knowledge and the two new paintings you will complete during the two-day period.

About the instructor

Jane has been painting on walls for 25 years using rags, sponges, graining tools, floggers (I'll bring one to the workshop), plastic, newspaper, tissue, and all manner of tools, paints, textures and glazes to get an effect. Since living on the coast, she has experimented with even more obscure tools and products just to see what if? The effects are amazing and simple (well some are!). She now paints on very large solid core panels with everything in the kitchen and the kitchen sink!! See her Local Artist Profile with images.
