March 7 & 21 Workshop with Christine Raj

March 7 & 21 Workshop with Christine Raj

Acrylic Pouring and Texture Workshop with Christine Raj

About Workshops in general:
Start at 9.30-12.30pm 1st & 3rd Wed. each month in Studio
2, Gosford Arts Centre. Cost: $25.00 per week includes
guest tutor and morning tea. Visitors are welcome.

Hi everybody – it’s time to dive into beautiful textured backgrounds again, using everything and anything at your disposal. I use everything from a potato masher for mark making, to bits of string, leaves and bark, fabric, plaster bandage and gyprock mixture. And I love to see my groups experiencing the joy of experimenting and playing around with different materials and textures….the results of these experiments can be translated into beautiful artworks.

So start getting your little treasure trove together, including texture paste, glue, tissue paper, pictures to rip up, seed pods, leaves, sticks & straw etc. You will also need some medium to seal your textured surface, and your normal acrylic paints, brushes and palette knife…..and of course, a couple of canvasses, or gessoed boards.

For acrylic pouring technique, you will need some plastic cups & sticks for stirring, a water container, and if desired, some “Poly Easy Flow” or “Floetrol”, which is an acrylic paint additive which you can buy at Bunnings. It extends your acrylic paint without diluting the pigment, as water does. It also produces beautiful “cells” in your poured acrylic. Include either a sheet of plastic or newspaper to catch drips. I’m looking forward to seeing you all again, and sharing the joy of textured painting with you.

Christine is a local artist living on the Central Coast. Born in Wagga Wagga on the Riverina, she also lived for many years in the Blue Mountains and on the Gold Coast of Queensland, absorbing the beauty of our Country’s different landscapes and climates. The rich, visceral colourful nature of our landscapes, flora and fauna have had an effect on her artwork, whether textural acrylics, or ink and multimedia, on a myriad of different surfaces.
