WORKSHOPS
Abstract PAINTING

UPCOMING 2022 Workshops →

Take a journey through different aspects of abstract painting and finding what works for you as an artist. Mila demonstrates painting intuitively by tapping into emotions instead of using recognizable imagery. This practical, fun, and process-oriented workshop will guide you to confidence, clarity and freedom of expression in your art. If you're looking to uncover and develop what's unique about YOUR artistic voice, or to loosen up your art, that's what this workshop is all about.

SUPPLY LIST

Gathering the right acrylic painting art supplies is the first step in learning how to paint with acrylics. Below a list of essential acrylic art supplies that you'll need to get started painting.

Acrylic Paint
There are many brands of acrylic paints available. What's the difference? Price and quality. I would generally suggest that you avoid the Student paints. They contain more filler and less pigment, so the results will be less satisfactory than the more superior Artist Quality paints. I personally use Golden, Liquitex, and Winsor-Newton. Here are some important ones:  

Red- cadmium light or Pyrolee red
Yellow – cadmium medium or any bright yellow
Blue – ultramarine and phthalo
Green –blue green and a yellow green
Turquoise and/or teal
Violet (or medium magenta)
Black
Titanium White or Gesso - large tube for mixing
Gloss Varnish - Medium

2 canvases: 24x24, 24x30 or 36x36
