Best Practices for Acrylic Paint Workshop

Ready to level up your acrylic studio practice? In this workshop we’ll discuss behind the scenes necessities for creating and preserving your acrylic paintings including: stretching, gessoing, and wiring canvases; different types of surfaces for acrylic (canvas, panel, paper); brands of paints and how to read their labels; varnishing; and correctly packing your painting for shipping. You’re highly encouraged to bring your own canvas to prepare and a finished painting with shipping supplies; but you can also just watch the demos and take notes!
