FLAX is hosting a collage workshop for adults in conjunction with the Montclair Library's 5th Annual UNBOUND Book Art & Craft Contest!
Jeni Paltiel of the Friends of Montclair Library will lead this workshop exploring collage techniques and play with words and paper to make art from discarded books. If you choose, you can enter your finished work in FOML’s annual UNBOUND Book Art & Craft contest at the event. Books and materials will be provided, but feel free to bring your own materials if you have a specific project in mind.
Please sign up for this FREE workshop!
Lascaux acrylics are superb, Swiss made, highly pigmented, smoothly ground artist grade paints. With a texture and feel normally preserved for oil paints, we guarantee you will see and feel the difference. Try out these incredible acrylics for yourself at this free workshop!
Fun fact: Lascaux paint is the only acrylic paint artist Sol Lewitt used on his murals as seen here in Loopy Doopy at SF MOMA. (Did you know, all Lascaux acrylic paint used for this mural was provided by FLAX?)
Please sign up for this FREE workshop. Seats are limited.
Golden Water Media Classroom: with Tesia Blackburn
What is watermedia? Using water as the medium, Tesia will demonstrate several techniques using Golden Acrylics in a watercolor-like fashion. She'll also introduce you to Qor, Golden's watercolor paint that FLAX sells in sets. These are two very different types of paint. Tesia will demonstrate both of these, go over their various properties and then you will work with them to create at least two and possibly three (time permitting) artworks.
This is a paid classroom through Tesia Blackburn and Golden Artist Colors.
Class fees: $59.00 All paints, mediums and gels are provided.
Class will be four hours of professional instruction.
WHAT YOU SHOULD BRING:
A roll of paper towels
A watercolor pad no larger than 9" x 12".
A palette such as foam paper plates or butcher tray
Various soft brushes like the Series 7
Two-three plastic palette knives
Scrapers, paint shapers and other mark making tools
All above mentioned materials can be purchased through FLAX
