Art Workshop: Acrylic Painting with Rhonda Nass

November 3, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

$155 – $170

Acrylic, Stroke-free: The New Watercolor with Rhonda Nass

If visions of harshly colored gobs of paint come to mind when you hear the word acrylic, you are not alone. This class will blow that perspective out the window. Through a simple, step-by-step exercise, you’ll learn a unique acrylic application technique that involves diluting paint from the tube and layering in translucent color using a feathering stroke that results in a stroke-free final appearance, with unlimited potential for extremely tight detail and dramatic lighting and realistic color. We’ll take a brief look at composition. Then each participant will design and begin a painting of his/her own chosen subject. There will be time to gain enough skills through demos, one-on-one time, and practice in the workshop to leave the class confident to complete with excellence the personalized acrylic artwork.

Rhonda spends a lot of one-on-one time with students, so this class is appropriate for all skill levels. She’ll get beginners going with great techniques, and keep advanced painters challenged the whole way.

Class will include a lunch break, so students can bring a sack lunch or visit restaurant options within walking distance. Suggested supply list is available upon request or registration. $155 + $8 supplies fee through Oct. 20, $170 + $8 supplies fee after Oct. 20

About Rhonda:

Rhonda Nass can thank her high school art teacher (who told the stubborn German teenager she could never be an artist) for launching her into her art career. She and her husband, Rick, have owned an illustration studio for 50 years and she continues to create artwork for editorial and publication use as well as corporate, private, museum and gallery collections. Rhonda teaches colored pencil, graphite and acrylic workshops nationwide and has recently written/illustrated/published “Scratchings of a Madwoman,” a book about faith and creatively communicating with colored pencil. You can view her work at www.rnass.com.
