Erik Sandgren Class

Erik Sandgren: Color, Light and Space -- Working with Acrylics and Aqueous Media
Saturday - Sunday, September 24 - 25, 9am - 4pm

 Washington artist, printmaker and educator Erik Sandgren believes that acrylics and other aqueous media offer tremendous advantages and versatility for an evolving painting process. In this workshop,

Erik will show you his techniques for manipulating the paint film in unorthodox ways such as glazing, scratching, scuffing, and abrading. He has many strategies to share about materials and techniques, driven by each student's desire for expression based on color and composition.

There will be daily demonstrations, with group and individual conversations, all interspersed with looking at some master paintings. Bring your favorite water-based materials and tools, along with your sketchbooks and suitable supports (panels, paper or canvas).

He suggests also bringing one failed, stalled or abandoned painting in acrylic or another aqueous medium- the objective is for everyone in the workshop to take away something useful that will inspire a fresh take on his or her work.

Please call OSA to register for Erik's workshop.
