A Free Golden Artist Colors Workshop for Teens:

In this 4 hour workshop we’ll be creating posters or t-shirts for a favorite cause with artist Mike Townsend.  
We’ll be teaching eye-catching poster and sign layout and design for maximum impact, and also teaching basic hand lettering by brush.  Teens should “BYOC” to class.  (Bring your own cause!).  Any images teens can provide (by cell phone or tablet or printed) will be helpful to make the most of the class. Inspiration can be also drawn from the exhibitions at the Earlville Galleries…the workshop overlaps the TeensART exhibit that runs through May 10.

The goal is to help artists with basic drawing skills but who may be intimidated by the paintbrush with a fun, low key approach to learning about working with acrylic color and creating surfaces you can draw on.  Attendees would learn preparation of a surface for drawing, sealing and adding color to their work during and after creating a drawn outline. An introduction to new GOLDEN High Flow Acrylics that can be used by brush, airbrush, fiber tipped markers, and dip pen!  For this workshop, we’ll provide poster stock.  Teens can bring in their own T-shirts to paint if they prefer to WEAR their cause!.  

This class is taught by artist super hero Mike Townsend Michael Townsend, an artist and employee of Golden Artist Colors for over 20 years.  He works with cutting edge technologies in the acrylic field at the Golden Artist Colors factory.  He’s very often the guy on the phone helping artists understand how to do what they want to do with the medium!  (That makes him a super hero to many because sometimes they work together to invent new ways to solve problems!)

EOH events are made possible, in part, with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and through the generosity of EOH members.
These workshops are funded, in part, with a grant from the NYS Office of Children and Family Services through the Madison County Youth Bureau.
