Incorporate various mediums in your art

The Fremont Art Association's (FAA) guest artist for May is Judy Gittelsohn. She will present a lecture/demo on acrylic paints, gels and mediums: an advanced technical explanation of acrylics, and their inherent possibilities. This lecture covers information about the different types of pigments, viscosities, and types of paints, grounds and color mixing. Various gels and mediums are demonstrated.

Participants will learn how to extend paint to save money, and how to mix paints with gels to create unique textural surfaces. Learn how to use different products to make surfaces for watercolors, graphite, charcoal, colored pencil, oil and soft pastels. Techniques for the use of iridescent and metallic paints will be shown. The lecture covers, light fastness of pigments and health and safety concerns.

Gittelsohn has been painting in the Bay Area for over 20 years. She exhibits widely and her work is collected around the world in both private and corporate collections. She is represented by Anne Loucks Gallery and The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art Artists' Gallery. She has received several grants to teach art to developmentally disabled individuals, people recovering from illness or injury and at risk youth - mount shows, produce murals and create publications of their artwork.

A packet of literature and free samples of paint and gels will be provided to those who attend, while supplies last.
