Let's loosen up and create beautiful, colorful paintings using acrylic. We will begin by preparing our papers in the Gustav Klimt painting method, dropping liquid acrylic on the paper and then scraping it, using a credit card. We will develop these underpaintings into students' choice of subjects. Suggested subjects might be animals such as bears, wolves, or maybe a fugurative painting. Painting in acrylics in the Gustav Klimt method is such a fun process! We will also be adding wire drawing to our paintings to bring them to completion. Wire drawing is done using permanent black markers to look like a wire sculpture when completed. Abstract designs will be discussed and students will learn how wire drawings help ALL of their paintings be more complete and professional. Bring your favorite reference photos and get ready to loosen up!
Karen Knutson is an award winning artist of semi-abstract paintings.
