This is great for those students who would like to try acrylic for the first time. We start out by squirting drops of acrylic on the paper and scraping it with a credit card! Students always LOVE this process! Karen even has tricks to make drawing people so easy, so no drawing skills are required. Tricks like squirting with water to create spots, and adding rubbing alcohol to create round shapes, make this workshop at hit with everyone! We will get to doodle to our heart’s content in this workshop. This workshop will emphasize good design and lots of tricks to make the detail work easier. You may use inexpensive paints for this process, so if it’s your first time with acrylics, don’t worry that the cost will be too much.
