“Painting in Acrylics on Canvas”
Demonstration by Marlene Gremillion
February 20, 2017 – 2:00 p.m.
Ouachita Artists Gallery
There are many, many ways to paint with acrylics on canvass and Marlene will be doing only one technique, which is a layering technique.
Recently Marlene painted a large commission for the Central Library System in Little Rock, AR and many followed this progress on her Facebook page. Therefore, she decided that this technique might be of interest to others.
Marlene will discuss using acrylics along with techniques and designing a composition. All are welcome to come watch and of course ask questions during the process.
If there is an interest, Marlene will be willing to teach an all day workshop in the near future.
Please call the Gallery if you have questions (870) 867-3115.
We are starting THE BACK WALL this year with Photography. Several of our members are displaying their photographs and we hope you will stop by to view and enjoy them.
