THE YUPO EXPERIENCE
Whether you’re a beginner or a master, if you're inspired by texture and rich color, this workshop is for you. Join the adventure of painting on the slick ‘ice rink’ called 'Yupo’, a creative challenge that will enrich your artistic journey, while allowing you to choose whatever subject and style you desire…impressionism, abstract, realism. Paint what you know, what you love, and what will challenge you. Ideal subjects are from photos with high value contrast, with side or back lighting or lots of shadows. There's no limit to what can be created on Yupo. Sandy will share the many diverse methods she uses to achieve unique, provocative results on this synthetic 'paper’. You’ll learn to master a variety of special techniques for painting on this exciting, slick surface, with both Transparent Watercolor and Fluid Acrylics.
Each workshop day will include well-organized demonstrations of various, unique techniques, followed by studio time and lots of individualized attention.
Informative critiques throughout the workshop will help, not only with technique, but also with composition and design of your artwork. Both novice painters and master artists will be challenged. Sure to charge up your imagination, the possibilities are endless, and mistakes can easily be corrected! So it is fear-free fun!
Sandy has been teaching painting nationally and in France for 20 years. Having won numerous awards, Sandy is a signature member of both Ohio Watercolor Society and Watercolor Society of Indiana and has a degree in Art Education from Indiana University.
