About the Event

Join Julia Wallace as she leads the Contemporary Abstract Florals Workshop on June 19 & 20 from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. daily at the Pike Road Arts Center (944 Wallahatchie Rd)! At this brand new two-day workshop, she'll guide participants through color mixing, creating texture, line and shapes, layering mixed media applications, exploring additive and reductive techniques, designing and examining composition and more. YOU can find your own personal style at this workshop through a variety of techniques, including glazing mediums with acrylics and cold wax with oils. Attendees will leave this workshop with a better understanding of their artistic style and at least one fully completed abstract floral painting!

Artists will learn:

 - Design principles and how to apply to the work you are creating.

 - Color mixing in a limited palette and under painting with acrylics

 - Using small thumbnail color studies to plan palette before painting

 - How to mix and layer different mediums (acrylics, oils, cold wax, graphite, oil sticks) and tools to create texture and interest.

There will be a lunch break each day, so bring your lunch with you! There will be a fridge, convection oven and microwave in the studio for participants.

There is a cost associated with this workshop. Participants may pay the $250 registration fee when registering here

The Pike Road Arts Center is located at 944 Wallahatchie Rd, under the water tower.
