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

Sep 4 - Sep 9

4 Teaching Days


This workshop will consist of letting loose and having fun! Not focusing on perfection, but rather our own personal voice in our art that relies on intuition, intention, meaning, what feels right to us even though we may not know why, enjoying the process, and even breaking some rules in what we think we need to do as an artist!

You will learn new skills, not only with the various mediums, but also shape, pattern, how color value and works together, contrast, composition and excitement.

Our mornings will start with instructor demonstrations, and students loosening up exercises with acrylic paint on watercolor paper, and acrylic paint and inks on Yupo paper.

Throughout this workshop we will progress to mono printing using stencils and other textural elements with a gel press plate, to create collage papers.
In the later part of the workshop we will be putting it all together by using our papers and various elements we created in previous days.

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:
Abstraction and playing with color, value, pattern, and composition
Exploring acrylic and inks on yupo paper
Mono printing using the gel press plate
Collage and paint from our mono printed papers, yupo paper,and acrylic papers
Learning it’s sometimes okay to break the rules!
