Join us for an Intimate conversation with John Cogley, owner of DANIEL SMITH Inc. Curious about Quinacridone pigments, wonder where in the world the color Serpentine comes from, how a color gets its name or how DANIEL SMITH tests pigments for lightfastness? John will explain all this. This workshop is your chance to get your questions answered directly from the master.
The presentation will start off with the history of DANIEL SMITH manufacturing and the many aspects of developing DANIEL SMITH products. You will see firsthand lab paint outs, and minerals used to manufacture colors in the PrimaTek line and more.
Following will be a overview of the complete DANIEL SMITH watercolor line up and the very fun opportunity to put paint to paper! Create your own color palette with any number of colors by dabbing “dots” on WC paper, and spend some time painting.
We will be hosting hosting these workshops at both the Oakland and Fort Mason stores! Fort Mason will be from 11:00 to 1:00 and Oakland's workshop will be from 3:00 to 5:00.
Daniel Smith Watercolor Paints will be on sale the day of the event at 30% off!
Sign up now seats are limited!
