                                                                      Flower in the Sky, 2017 24 x 36

Taught by Judy Gittelsohn (

Class Description
We will do exercises exploring many ways of painting – blending, layering and glazing and incorporating the use of some collage. The exercises will be driven by the use of Golden’s amazing range of artist colors.

Judy will show us the different types of paint we will experiment with how they act and interact, and then lead us on a painting and collaging adventure to create interesting pieces made with layers of paints and gels, and textures with a wide range of surface quality and color.

You may wish to look at ahead of time, or not and prepare for a magical mystery tour in the class.
