THE FREEDOM OF ACRYLICS
Do you want to use bolder colors that make your paintings pop? Would you like your artwork to have a looser, less controlled feel? In Jane’s workshop, she’ll show you why acrylic is the perfect solution. Without forgoing the important building blocks of good design, you’ll be encouraged to experiment and find success outside your comfort zone. You’ll learn how to “paint with less restraint” while bringing energy and artistic spirit to your work. In her casual and charismatic way, she’ll challenge you to complete up to two paintings each day as you discover the freedom of acrylics. Through daily demos Jane will show you her free-form technique and style, but she’ll always encourage you to develop your own freedom and artistic viewpoint.
Jane honed her passion for watercolor as a student at Endicott Junior College in Boston. She later graduated from Ohio University with a degree in Art Education. While in college, Jane spent a semester in Florence, Italy, and gleaned much inspiration from the richness of the historical art and gorgeous landscapes. When she decided to step out of her comfort zone and try acrylics, she felt absolutely liberated by the strong colors and the ability to layer thick textures of paint! From that moment forward she’s been exploring, teaching, and motivating others to express themselves through painting with acrylics. From her love of people and culture, and through the play of shadow and light on old buildings, the beautiful sunny beaches of Florida now serve as daily inspirations for her portfolio. A truly gifted artist, she brings paint to life with ease and elegance.
