venetian plaster workshop
Many artists use unexpected materials to create their artworks, and in doing so, their work takes on a wonderful, unique quality and feeling.
Polished and Venetian Plaster is a term for the finish and updated forms of traditional Italian plaster finishes. It's a wall and ceiling finish consisting of plaster mixed with marble dust, applied in thin, multiple layers then burnished to create a smooth surface with the illusion of depth and texture. It can be tinted, or colored using natural or synthetic colorants.
AND...it makes a wonderful painting surface in art! Come learn how to mix and spread this wonderful material and use it in your art.
About the instructor
There are so many wonderful avenues to take in art...and I love the exploration. That's what keeps me excited about this lovely journey... it's ever changing, aways adventurous and completely delightful. In my early life I had long careers in display and visual presentation, along with another as a faux finish and mural artist in many homes for private clients as well as Interior Designers. My mural work eventually led me into painting on canvas and my merchandising eye for putting things together stirred my interests towards mixed media and assemblage art. I wake up most mornings ready to create. I greet my studio with something in mind and start the days adventure from there.
