ARTspots annual golden paint co. lecture with barbara depirro! saturday March 23, 10am-Noon : FREE Event
20% Off All Golden Products this one day only

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.

We will then work with QoR Watercolors in combination with GOLDEN Acrylics to explore the resoluability of watercolor and the permanence of acrylics.

Finally, attendees will 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. Attendees will receive Information packets & free samples!

  • Note: this lecture is held at the Art Works Building about two blocks away from ARTspot. Art Works is located at 201 2nd Ave s, at the corner of 2nd and Dayton.
