“50 Ways to Leave your Layer” with Seth Apter
November 9 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm$110
Instructor: Seth Apter
Runaway is very excited to be hosting yet another nationally known mixed media artist. This time the very talented Seth Apter will be joining us — this is the first of two workshops he will be teaching the weekend of Nov. 9 & 10.
50 Ways to Leave Your Layer
Okay. Maybe not 50. But a lot. In this workshop, you will be putting your paint playlist on repeat as we go through a series of paint layering techniques that you can apply to all your creative projects. Everybody will be provided with a journal to work in that we will fill up, page after page, with layered backgrounds. Additive and subtractive paint techniques, properties of acrylic paint, mark making, application strategies, and much more will be included. In the end, you will leave with a new journal that you can keep as a technique reference manual or continue to work in to complete your journal pages in your own personal style.
Supply List (available at Runaway): Fluid acrylic paint (both opaque and translucent) Chip brushes (1/2 and 1 inch brushes work well) Flat paint palette Ink Pads (in a variety of colors) Craft sponges Brayer Black and white journaling pens (Signo Uniball are Seth’s favorite) Heat tool (optional – each table will have one embossing gun or heat tool to share between two people) Your current art journal, if you have one (optional)
Seth will provide a journal for each participant, plus a number of mixed media supplies not listed. In addition, he will bring the following to share but you are welcome to bring your own as well: unmounted rubber stamps, stencils, textured material.
Space is limited, so be sure to sign up right away by contacting Runaway at Christy@RunawayArt.com or (503)881-6270. Or just come into the store — we’d love to see you! We will need payment to hold your spot — $25 of the cost of each class is a non-refundable deposit. If you need to cancel for some reason, we can refund the remainder of your class fee (less the $25) if you let us know by the close of business on Saturday, November 2. We will not be able to offer refunds for cancellations after that date.
