Introduction to Visionary Painting Methods Using Acrylics Workshop


Date: 


September 22nd 10 AM Bali time, 7pm California time on September 21st. 3 Hours workshop!


Outline:


Join Visionary Artist Jake Kobrin for an introductory live workshop on how to create visionary art with acrylic painting methods. 


Methods covered will include:


Preparation

Fishing for visions using the Decalcomania method

Textures

Layering

Underpainting

Glazing

Mediums

Acrylic painting materials

Composition

And more! 


Jake will be available for an extensive Q&A session after the painting process is finished.


In this workshop, Jake Kobrin will lead his students on how to start their acrylic paintings in quick and fun ways while getting complex, organic, and very interesting patterns which helps boost creativity and vision, using an old shamanic painting method popularized by Max Ernst and Robert Venosa called Decalcomania.


Jake will demonstrate how painting can be a fun, easy, and meditative experience. Jake will demonstrate how to build up form using transparent white paint, over a textured abstract acrylic background. 


Jake will then demonstrate how to use layered glazes, pulling shapes and meaning out of the randomly emerging patterns. The seemingly complex method of progressive layers of detail and glazing will be demystified in this workshop, in a way that even beginners will have no trouble understanding! This method is similar to the famed Mischetechnique but uses acrylics instead of oils. Jake will also go over his materials in detail and show how he uses acrylic paints to their greatest advantage.
