 This class will introduce you to the direct mosaic technique. Honoring
 the season, demos of unique DIY gift giving and d├ęcor ideas will be
 shared during break time. Come join us for this fun Mosaic Art Gift
Workshop and create gifts that will be dearly cherished!

Hi Artists! The education committee is excited to have Phil Garrett present a two day acrylic painting workshop Friday and Saturday, November 1 and 2, 2013 at the Arboretum classroom.

This is an amazing opportunity to work with a beautiful painter, print maker and mixed media artist. As Golden Working Artist representative, Phil is able to provide insights to the versatility and depth of acrylic paint. I highly recommend this workshop for any oil painters out there who like many pros (John Poon to name one) who have converted to the acrylic medium. Phil will focus on using acrylics as if they were oils and the paint is provided by Golden!!! It's a win-win since you get to experiment and try it without investing in another set of paints.

Please see flyer attached, registration is available on the WAA website: www.wilmingtonart.org.
