Instructors:  Michael Schaffer and Meriel Wisotsky
What is Pebeo?  It is an oil-based paint that is used for special effects.  Pebeo works on all sorts of surfaces including canvas, glass, metal and ceramic.  We have been experimenting with creating interesting effects by using Pebeo in conjunction with The New Action Art.  We are offering this class to introduce you to the exciting effects possible when Pebeo meets and mixes with acrylic ink and paint.
Day 1) The first class will consist of a brief review of the New Action Art technique.  The students will then begin to use the Pebeo paints in conjunction with inks and various solvents.  Many of the pebeo paints create special effects on their own, but a whole new level of magic transforms a painting with the addition of other materials.  Paintings become dynamic and full of energy and motion with this method.
Day 2) In the second class, students will enhance their paintings with the application of drawing materials or more kinds of paint.  They will learn other methods of embellishing their art works. Students can continue to create entirely new paintings, as well.  Students will complete two or more artworks and, in addition, take away ideas for future projects.
COST:  $79.00.  To sign up, visit   or call Michael Schaffer at 916-213-3530.
