DIY-Make your own traditional gesso, panels & learn to use rich oil mediums…

Aside

Every few months with 6-8 students, we make up a group of panels using traditional gesso, linen over board, and gessoed board. The traditional gesso can be textured or sanded smooth to suit your needs. The result is a surface that reflects light light and absorbs oil, entirely different from working on acrylic. Working together we can prepare enough panels for the upcoming season in our favorite size, ready to go. Our next materials workshop will go on the calendar when we have a minimum of 4 students. We hope to do another one before fall plein-air painting comes up. Contact me to find out more.

Moving Upriver…

Aside

We have just completed our move to a new studio in the River Arts District of Asheville. I will be open after some renovation after January 10th. You can reach me by email or phone/text as usual. The new location is in Riverview Station, 191 Lyman Street, Asheville. We’re in studio #236, upstairs on the north end. Take Old Lyman round to the back and part in the courtyard to the right. We’re really excited to be in this great, larger and more accommodating space. We expect to be open by January 15-16 and classes resume after the 18th if all goes well.
