Your Creation Station is pleased to announce a new workshop series starting January 2015…Canvas Painting! We take you step by step through creating your own canvas painting. As with other workshops at Your Creation Station, the mess stays here, the price includes everything and all you need to do is show up. For Canvas Painting workshops, you’ll leave with your finished, 16″ x 20″ or 12″ x 12″, suitable for framing, canvas that evening.
What to Expect
At the workshop, participants work step by step through each element of the selected design. The instructor will provide assistance in selecting the correct brush, mixing colors and applying them to the canvas to achieve the desired effect. We’ll have transfer patterns available to make the layout easier or tips and hints on how to do it freehand if you prefer that route. Workshops are offered on a per design basis and although everyone is working on the same picture, be prepared for individual results.
Canvas Painting workshops are held right here at Your Creation Station in the relaxed, can-do atmosphere you’re already comfortable with. Classes start on time on the day or evening of your selected workshop and last for approximately an hour and half to two hours, depending on the design. Dress comfortably but don’t wear your Sunday best, we’re using acrylic paints and they don’t come out as easily as the ceramic underglazes (the paints for the pottery) do. If you have a apron or smock you like to use, feel free to bring it. You are also welcome to bring anything you like to eat or drink.
As always, we’re here to help you succeed in achieving your artistic vision with the same patience and easy to follow instructions you expect at Your Creation Station. Most importantly, remember, your probably more creative than you give yourself credit for and we know it, even if you don’t believe it.
Cost Canvas Size and Design
We offer two size canvases, a 16″ x 20″ and a 12″ x 12″ size priced at $35 and $25 respectively. We recommend participants be at 15 years or older for the larger canvas projects and at 8 years or older for the smaller size. We will be keeping the subject matter and complexity of the design appropriate for each of these age. The workshop price includes the canvas, the paint, the instruction and access to everything else you need to complete the design. When the workshop is complete, you’ll leave with your masterpiece that evening and we’ll clean up the mess.
