COOS BAY — Expand your painting skills by learning new techniques in a one-day workshop packed with a variety of methods to create interesting effects with acrylic paint. The workshop, led by Zoe Cohen, will be noon-4 p.m. Friday, April 20, at Coos Art Museum. Class size will be limited to 7-16 teens and adults. Areas of exploration will include reverse stencil, sgraffito, collage, monoprinting with deli paper and veiling with transparent paint. Use of alternative tools for paint application rounds out the experimentation. This workshop is also a great review for those who have previously taken Cohen's abstract painting workshop.
Materials list: 1 sheet Stonehenge printmaking paper, 1 LYRA graphite crayon, 3-4 tubes of acrylic paint, 1-2 brushes, 1 rubber brayer, and optional supplies are neo-color crayons, extra paints, gel medium, stencils, and scissors.
Cost for the workshop is $95 for CAM members and $105 for non-members.
Those who would like a weekend workshop with Cohen, she will offer two days of painting to examine effective use of color and composition in abstract. Participants work toward creating a personal palette which reflects their unique sensibility. By creating color charts of their mixing experiments, each person will have a record to take home. Classic color schemes and traditional compositions are explored in a set of guided exercises. Studio time will provide students with the opportunity to explore working in a series. This is an intermediate level class. Some experience with abstract painting is recommended.
The materials list is: 2 sheets Stonehenge printmaking paper, 1 rubber brayer, 4-6+ tubes acrylic paint (primaries plus black and white), 2-3 neocolor ll water soluble crayons (favorite colors) 2+ brushes (one at least 1” wide) and anything else you might need. Class will be held 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday, April 21 and Sunday, April 22. Cost is $175 for CAM members and $195 for non-members. Deadline for registration is April 6.
