GFAA WORKSHOP REGISTRATION

Acrylics with Robin Popp

September 11, 2021

9am - 4pm at GFAA Gallery: 1314 S Main Street

$75 fee

 

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

Join Robin for a deep dive into acrylic painting. We'll be exploring different techniques, surfaces and tools and playing with new possibilities for creating representational paintings with vibrancy and texture. Beginners are welcome!

Robin will bring photo references, paper swatches, found words, as well as different surfaces for painting on and new tools to try.

Color mixing will also be a big part of this class as Robin shares her experience with a limited palette.

Acrylic paints are the perfect medium for collage, texturing, and mixed media. We'll explore these and more while staying on the side of realism. Fun, Fun, Fun!

ABOUT ROBIN POPP

Born in south Florida, Robin has always had a love for sunshine and palm trees. Encouraged by a creative family, her love of art started as soon as she could hold a brush. She spent a short time at Ringling School of Art and Design in Sarasota, FL, and earned a certificate as a cabinetmaker from Pinellas Technical College in Clearwater, FL. Combining her love for painting and for woodworking has been a challenge until recently when she began to cradle her paintings in wooden boxes. Now Robin has a painting studio and a woodworking studio on the thirteen acres in north Florida she shares with her husband. Their three grown children live with their families in three different directions of the compass.
