Paint anything, on EVERYTHING... Oil Paintstiks workshop is coming up!

Hello Art Friends & Fiends! 

I'm teaching a one-day workshop which will introduce you to a very versatile painting medium:  Shiva Artists' Oil Paintstiks.

These look like giant crayons, but are actually fine oil paint in stick form.  Paintstiks are safe to use on fabric (soft, wearable & washable); paper (thin, thick, textured, smooth); and much more. They do not require solvents, but are completely compatible with all oil painting mediums if you so choose. 

As usual, it's another mixed-media friendly product that I get rather excited about!

All materials are provided for participants.  We're going to cover the basics of how to use them, primarily on fabric and paper, but I'll have samples on hand of how Painstiks work on other surfaces as well.  

 (One thing I'm working on with these is painting an old metal filing cabinet.  Not sure if I'll manage to haul it to the store for the event, but I'll try!)

Class is from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. (with a break for lunch) on Saturday Sept. 17th at Artists' Mediums. There is only room for eight students, and it's coming up quick!  You can follow the link above for more information.  If you're interested in attending, contact the store directly at:  (802) 879-1236 to sign up.  

Hope to see you there. If you aren't able to make it, please help me spread the word!
