447-Palette Knife and Impasto Workshop

We bring you a one-day workshop perfect for beginners, hobbyists & art enthusiasts where you'll learn how to paint with a palette knife and we promise you'll never want to use a brush again! 

 

"Impasto is a technique of using thick layers of paint which when applied to a surface gives a unique sense of texture and raw depth to the painting. In this technique strokes and the movement of application are clearly visible."

 

The workshop will cover topics like texture, material handling, and composition, giving you the confidence to work/experiment on your own as well. Participants are welcome to come in with options for reference images that they'd like to draw and paint. We will also have references ready for them to choose from.
