Exploring Texturing for your Paintings

Instructor: Deborah O’RourkeDeborah O'Rourke

This class will explore many different texturing options. We will be using wooden canvases 6 x 6 or 8 x 8 and will make art using techniques as done in the photos. We will explore a variety of texturing products including paper clay sculpting, metallic paint ideas, crackle paste, gritty mediums, gold leaf and more. The range of texturing products that have exploded onto the art scene is mind boggling and we cannot try them all but we will try many.  A demonstration of using resin will be given.

Most supplies will be provided and are included in the cost of this class.

Fee: $150.00

You will need to bring:

  • brushes,
  • acrylic paints,
  • a variety of found objects (particularly rocks or minerals),
  • also beads or any other object you might have and want to include in your art.
  • Also bring popsicle sticks and q tips,
  • a table covering
  •  a large roll of paper towels.
  • Paper and pencils, a notebook.
  • You will need latex or nitrile gloves for some of the techniques.
  • An apron,
  • palette knives, pen caps old library cards or expired credit cards.  Look for kitchen tools or any other objects which might be used to impress textures.  Go on a hunt and use your imagination.

For this class I will set up a table outside on the back patio and demonstrate, then hand out supplies for the technique. Students will then go back into the classroom to work. I will not be entering the classroom.

Properly worn masks are mandatory.

Registration: Registration opens August 10, 2020.
