Unexpected Paintings: The Back Story

January 26, 2019 -

1 Day

Friday 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Taught by Noelle King

Join us for an experimental painting workshop. We will be working in acrylics on acetate, discovering the unexpected paintings that appear as a result. This mysterious process is actually quite simple and, although not archival in nature, the finished works can be enjoyed as your process is revealed. No prior painting experience necessary.

Supplies provided:
The instructor will provide the acetate

Supplies to bring:
Participants should bring an array of acrylic paints and a number of brushes, as well as lunch. Students should also bring a number of source materials such as photographs. Studio clothing recommended. You can go to Dick Blick and search for the wish list “NewportArtMuseum Unexpected Paintings” and find all the paints and brushes suggested. Students can also bring their own materials; paint must be acrylic.
