Learn new ways to layer acrylic paint for depth and visual intrigue. Joan Fullerton will share inspiring demonstrations and lectures, as she reinforces the fundamentals of painting and then shows you how to build on them.  You’ll create a personal lexicon of symbols, learn to hear and trust your intuition, practice taking risks and beyond your comfort zone, integrate collage and paint, all the while noticing and valuing what shows up. Your work will be more expressive as you expand your mark-making repertoire, and your creative confidence will blossom with greater understanding of your individual art process and resulting product.

 We’ll scribble, scratch, glue, paint, embed, spray, remove, blend, glaze, sand, stain, amplify and diminish.   You’ll know freedom, learn to cope with frustration, and evolve your art to a new level.  Color theory and design concepts will structure your composing and editing, and you will learn to both design intentionally before painting as well as intuitively, during painting.

This class is for all levels of experience.

 About the Artist:

imageJoan Fullerton grew up on the vast, slow-paced plains of Eastern Wyoming. While raising 3 children, she studied watercolor with Edgar Whitney, Frank Webb, Charles Reid and many other nationally known watercolorists.  In 1985 she returned to college and achieved BFA and MFA degrees in painting from the University of Wyoming.  She was a college art instructor at Laramie County Community College in Cheyenne, Wyoming from 1990 to 2003.  In 2003 she made the leap of faith to relocate and paint full-time in Taos, NM. During her 8 years in Taos, Fullerton made her mark and established her reputation as a well-known and respected artist and teacher. A recent move to south Denver, she is now hosting workshops in her studio and teaching across the nation.
