This exciting and informative workshop will teach you all about the confusing array of mediums, additives and grounds. On Saturday, Glenys Della Bosca from Impressions Art Shop in Richmond will take you through step by step to understand the qualities of each product, and how and when to use them. By the end of the day you will have series of sampler sheets that will become a reference resource for you. All mediums to create the sampler sheets will be supplied, and Glenys will bring extra products to purchase.

On Sunday, you will choose one or two of your favourite products, and under the expert guidance of a local artist create a painting. The day will end with a group show and tell, so you can see how a variety of mediums have been used to create the different paintings.

Materials required:
• Pencils
• Acrylic Paint
