People of all artistic abilities are invited to create a beautiful piece of art on Tuesday, March 11 and take it home. This two-and-a-half hour workshop, beginning at 6:30 p.m., focuses on using texture to create dimensional panel art on a wood canvas. Students learn to allow base color to show through, and a semi-transparent texturizing product is applied, which can be worked to achieve a variety of effects on the canvas surface. A tinted glaze is added to finish the piece to the desired color. Techniques are demonstrated, and class participants are at liberty to re-create the sample piece of invent their own unique interpretations using the methods shown.
The class instructor is Adrienne Wannamaker, who has 20 years of experience installing decorative finishes in both residential and commercial locations. With an extensive knowledge of professional products and a desire to share her expertise, she now owns Brush & Trowel, a store and showroom that provides decorative finishing products to designers, contractors, applicators and do-it-yourselfers.
This class will be held at the Multnomah Athletics Club, 1849 SW Salmon St, Portland, OR 97205. The cost for club members if $90 and $108 for non-members.
