Celebrate colours with Liquitex and our collaborator Marie-Josée Bergeron, an expert in acrylic paint and mixed media techniques! During this free online workshop, you'll create the artwork that was featured in the September 21, 2022, Facebook Live event.
Inspired by fall and its many colours and textures, you'll learn how to make collages with fabric and foil, and you'll also get to experiment with Liquitex®'s all-new Heavy Body™ Acrylics. In addition to explaining all the steps from A to Z, Marie-Josée will give you all the tips and tricks you need to create beautiful mixed media artwork. And to finish the workshop, you'll even have the chance to ask all your questions!
