Program ~  Kevin Tobin (Lecture & Demo)

Please join us as Kevin explores the unlimited possibilities of Golden Artist Colors Acrylic paint. We will cover a wide variety of topics and products including Heavy Body, Fluid Acrylics, Williamsburg Oil Paints, and QoR watercolors. Printmaking techniques utilizing Golden’s OPEN Acrylic, artist made printing plates using collagraphic processes, watercolor printing and a whole lot more. Given the time constraints we will only be able to briefly touch upon the various techniques but every artist attendee should come away from the event with a brain jam-packed with new possibilities.
!!! Everyone will receive an information pack & free samples !!!
This is a program change. Kevin is a very experienced and sought after artist/representative for Golden Products and he recently became available for our April Program. This is a special opportunity for us and we are fortunate that the timing worked in our favor. Sophie Dare Dentiste who was scheduled for this program, has graciously agreed to present her program next year. Thank you Sophie.
