Glazing in Acrylic

Workshop Info: Whether an avid painter or novice, whether one paints in a refined representational style or wild abstraction, integrating the use of multiple glazing layers can increase the depth and luminosity of the work. This workshop is structured to take place in two parts: Acrylic first, and then Oil. In addition to some basic studio supplies, students will also be required to bring two examples of their work; one complete and especially one in progress. Attention will focus on developing process strategies for each student. The painting techniques we will explore are designed to enhance one’s own personal style with tools that encourage experimentation.

Instructor: Charles Gulbrandsen

About the Instructor: Charles Gulbrandsen graduated from the Cooper Union with distinction in 1985 as a painting major and soon began a career in art restoration. After many decades of in-painting the missing and damaged areas of thousands of paintings, he had to resolve many technical challenges, and in so doing, synthesized this experience into the development of his own style.
