Outdoor Art Adventures to take this SUMMER

We can’t get enough of this Summer Sunshine! That just means time for more en plein air art. But where to start?
1. Choose your medium. Pencil? Pastels? Watercolor?
2. Pick your favorite outdoor spot (don’t forget water & sunscreen!).
3. And CREATE SOME ART

Exploring New Mediums: Image Acrylic Transfer Painting

These past two weeks took us on an Art Adventure exploring new mediums! We were introduced to acrylic gel medium to transfer printed images from a newspaper and onto our acrylic paintings. We also got a sneak peek/ mini- intro to gold leaf and the process of gilding!

Our Adventurers exhibited so much patience in the paper removal process!

Tres bien! Our results are worthy of a gallery display. Visit our GALLERY here!
