Fast, Loose and Bold Painting Workshop w/Patti Mollica

Special Events

Saturday, Feb 17 - Feb 18

10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Patti Mollica

Fee: $315

If you feel that you are concentrating too much on small details at the expense of a bolder, more dramatic outcome, this step-by-step workshop will help you to learn what to paint and more importantly, what to leave out. You will practice using bigger brushes and ample paint. We will take color to new unexpected places by working with simplified values. You will learn how to loosen up and apply your paint in a gestural, painterly manner. Join us for targeted instruction and training – this may open the door to an exciting new level of creativity and artistic expression. The workshop begins with a full explanation of materials, methods and a step-by-step painting demonstration.  Patti will be  working with  acrylic paints.

Note:  Patti will be offering a free demonstration at RAC on Sunday, February  4, 2018 (2-4pm). Patti will educate the audience on the latest Golden paints and mediums and how they can be incorporated into your work.  All are welcome.
