Textures for Animals and Beyond, with Stacy Lund Levy
March 19
This workshop will focus on techniques that Stacy thinks are essential for painting animals. She will share how to evaluate value and color prior to painting, mix neutrals, and apply masking fluid to create realistic textures and capture fine details without hard edges. While the focus of this demo is animals, these techniques can be applied to almost any subject.

Exploring Collage: Papers, Stamping, and Texture, with Linda Maldonado
March 20
Looking for a creative leap? Try out some basic collage paper painting techniques, work with instructor-provided materials to make small collage paintings, and play with painting watercolors on surfaces textured with rice papers. Linda will demonstrate several customized paper methods and students will have time to prepare their own using acrylic paint. Make simple and fast stamps with adhesive foam, then stamp your papers.
