Instructors: Eve Margo Withrow and
Registration deadline: September 29, 2020
We will be running this workshop as four two-hour home-based Zoom sessions with online video support and classroom discussions. There will be live instructor demos with Q&A in each session. Works in progress can be shared live and/or posted and feedback will be provided. The instructors will provide handouts and directions for working on projects between sessions. The first day’s demo will be recorded and available for participant use. Participants will be able to work at their own pace and post anytime on the online platform.
Texture makes your painting feel more dynamic, creates a sense of depth, and helps viewers emotionally connect with a painting. Texture is sometimes visual (on the surface) and sometimes dimensional (raised above the surface). We will work with both types of texture in this workshop.
Eve specializes in visual (surface) textures by layering and manipulating watermedia. Interesting patterns and images emerge from her process. She uses tissue paper, plastic wrap, waxed paper, salts, and other materials to create layers; following threads and surprises and imaginative pathways to create her uniquely powerful images. She then uses windowing and design techniques and sometimes collage to turn textural starts into finished paintings.
Pam specializes in creating dimensional texture through the use of a gesso mixture along with various texturing materials. Using a gesso underlayer allows a great deal of flexibility in subsequent layers, which can be either watercolor or acrylic. Pam will demonstrate not only the various ways gesso texture can be applied, but how to finish these paintings using value contrast and negative painting techniques.

Eve and Pam are the perfect compliment to each other in presenting and facilitating this creative journey, and they both have extensive teaching experience and coordinate well together so that participants will come out of the workshop with a variety of techniques and tools to start or expand their repertoire of texturing techniques.
