ARTspots annual golden paint co. lecture with barbara depirro!

Mark your calendar for March 28, 2020, 10am-Noon


Every spring, ARTspot hosts this wonderful free lecture. Attendees receive Information packets & free samples! We all love art swag.

We invite all comers to discover the wide range of GOLDEN paints that are fluid in motion: High Flow, Fluid Colors, and QoR Watercolor. Learn how to make the best archival choices from a collection of products. Beginning with traditional watercolor techniques using QoR Watercolor, we move into more contemporary ideas including using GOLDEN products in journaling. This will include an assortment of applications such as: pouring, staining, granulation, blooms, splash, and “white-out” tricks for saving that uncooperative watercolor painting. Attendees learn how to take advantage of GOLDEN and QoR Grounds to create myriad surfaces for their work: from paper-like surfaces with the QoR Grounds, to utilizing unique substrates such as wood panels, fabrics, and plastics with GOLDEN Grounds. Finally, we will cover the options of Archival Varnishing of watercolor surfaces, for preservation without using glass.

Barbara will demonstrate hands-on techniques using these products. Free Event.

Thank you Barbara DePirro for another terrific presentation this year. We can’t wait to have you back Spring 2020!
