Patricia Lintner
The Art of Imperfection with Acrylics, Inks, Collage and Yupo

Sep 4 - Sep 9

4 Teaching Days


This workshop will be a fun one! The full workshop will consist of abstract elements to create what is inside of each and every one of us. Our mornings will start with loosening up (“play” mode, think let’s be kids again!)exercises with acrylic paint on paper and canvas. Moving forward we will start our projects by exploring various techniques of acrylic paint as well as acrylic and alcohol inks on Yupo and Mineral paper.  We will then progress to creating our own papers using stencils and other textural elements with a geli plate, to use as collage for upcoming projects. The later part of the workshop will be putting it all together, with our papers including Yupo paper, stencils, acrylic paint and inks. Color, value and contrast will help guide you through the process of abstract. Thinking outside the box and working intuitively is the cornerstone of this workshop, while embracing the imperfect in all of us to create our very own beautiful works of art.

Art projects will be:
Acrylic and inks on Yupo
Abstract on canvas
Collage elements and acrylic paint on watercolor paper
Collage with Yupo and mineral paper
