No reviews No reviews
Instructor: Samantha Williams-Chapelsky

Join Samantha Williams-Chapelsky to discover the possibilities of modifying your acrylic paints with Mediums, Gels, and Pastes! This event focuses on GOLDEN’s vast array of Acrylic Mediums, Gels, & Pastes. Gain a broad understanding of each product and the unique qualities each has to offer for building up volume which can be translucent to opaque.  

Did you know GOLDEN acrylic Gels, Mediums and Pastes are great adhesives for mixed media work? Samantha will be sharing how these products can be used to modify paints, changing the sheen, viscosity, drying time, and texture. They can be used for image transfers, creating encaustic effects or to build up translucent layers within your artwork. All of these products can be applied to a wide range of surfaces such as paper, canvas, wood panels and so much more.  

You’ll learn valuable information about our products and network with other artists. And all attendees will get a small bag of samples to take home.

    VanessaClass: Pottery Throwing Level 2

    "The program brought together an excellent group of people with different levels of treaty knowledge. I loved how Celina approached topics with openness and empathy. Her discussion of the generational impacts of residential schools was very moving. Additionally, her sharing of her family’s oral histories of negotiating and signing treaties was eye-opening."
