Taught by JPAA Members

Fridays, January 11 – March 30, 2019 (8 weeks)
6:30 – 9:30pm
Acrylic Painting Fridays
Terry Boutelle, Instructor
Eliot School
24 Eliot Street
Jamaica Plain, MA

For experienced and beginning painters who want to work on assigned projects or on their own projects with guidance and feedback. Newcomers will learn about color and composition and how to begin a painting. Experienced painters will find ways to infuse their process with new vigor and be challenged to experiment with the edges of their comfort zone.  A live model or still life will be provided for each class. Registration is open, so pass the word to friends and artists.  I’m looking forward to this new time slot.

Painting on Yupo workshop series
Ginny Zanger
Eliot School of Fine and Applied Arts
24 Eliot Street
Jamaica Plain, MA

Yupo, a synthetic paper made from polypropylene resin, opens many exciting possibilities for water-based media. Colors flow, swirl and bleed on its surface, creating unique effects when the water evaporates. Once the initial image is dry, you may rework areas, remove color and apply monoprinting techniques. Go beyond basics, making a series of images in class.

This workshop will go through some of the myriad features and apps that will help you explore your artistic vision with this 21st century device.
