The Earlville Opera House presents the third of three GOLDEN ARTIST COLORS SERIES WORKSHOPS for fall. These classes are taught with Golden Artist Colors paints and expertise!  Sam Golden started local company in 1980; they now sell their products around the world. Their mission has been “To grow a sustainable company dedicated to creating and sharing the most imaginative and innovative tools of color, line and texture for inspiring those who turn their vision into reality”. Golden continually launches exciting new product lines and is well known for working with artists to produce excellent high quality acrylics and art materials that meet developing needs in the field.

“Discovering Digital Mixed Media” will be on Tuesday and Wednesday, November 5th and November 6th from 5:30 pm to 8 pm.  Artists are now experimenting with inkjet printers directly on paint skins and developing new uses and applications for mixed media that expand the boundaries of fine art and commercial art.  Don’t confine printing your artwork or photographic images onto just commercially available papers and canvases!

This 5-hour class will show you how to print on everything from acrylic paint skins to aluminum foil, and then how to adhere them to paintings or objects using acrylic mediums.  Embellishing with paint and texture over images will also be shown.

The tuition for the workshop is  $55, $50 members includes $10 materials fee – all materials provided for working with paper.

In his own work he enjoys painting everything from abstracts to landscapes, using everything from paint and brushes, to airbrushes and digital tools.
