Jacqueline Sullivan offering painting workshop

| January 18, 2015

COSHOCTON – The Pomerene Center for the Arts is offering a painting workshop with Jacqueline Sullivan from 9 to 4 p.m. Saturday, March 28, at the Coshocton Presbyterian Church on the second floor. This class is about building a painting layer by layer. Sullivan will lead the group through a series of experiments in applying layers of:

  • fluid acrylic paint (straight from the bottle and thinned to make glazes)
  • textures – including a variety of acrylic media and miscellaneous household items (cheesecloth, sizing, glues, tissue paper, lace papers)
  • and metallic foils

Together these ingredients will create richly textured surfaces. Students will leave the class with an understanding of how to use many different acrylic mediums and a small, layered collage built from the experimental pieces created throughout the day.

Please bring: Acrylic brush – about 1″ width (J.Sullivan likes the Golden™ Talon Brushes), several small pieces of 140 lb. cold press water color paper (or a Strathmore™ 300 series 9″x12″

tablet). If you have them you can also bring the following: A cutting mat, metal ruler, exacto knife with additional sharp blades. Supplies covered by your $10 supply fee includ: Fluid Acrylic Paints, Metallic Foils, cheesecloth, tissue paper, lace paper, honed outs, double faced tape, foam core, sizing, and various glues and mediums.

Students will get an hour off for lunch and can either brown bag it and eat at the Presbyterian Church or go out/home for lunch.

Cost of the workshop is $85 tuition plus $10 supply fee. Limit is seven students (min) – 14 (max) ages 15 and over, all levels. To register call 622-0326, or download a registration form from www.pomerenearts.org/learning/adults/acrylics-textures-layers-metallics.html. Registration deadline is Saturday, Feb. 28. The Pomerene Center works to keep life interesting through creativity and arts innovation.
