Wonky Grids Workshop

My Wonky Grids workshop at AVA Gallery is now open for registration.  It's a light hearted, playful approach to abstract composition with paint and collage.  Register here.



Supply List
  • 90 lb or 140 lb watercolor paper 22”x30”, hot press, or smooth printmaking paper of comparable weight: 4 sheets, 22”x30”.  I use Stonehenge paper.  Cut your paper to 8.25”x8.25” BEFORE class.  You should get six pieces from each sheet.
  • Acrylic Matte Medium or Soft Gel: one pint. (I use Utrecht Matte Medium)
  • Acrylic glazing medium/liquid: one small bottle
  • Acrylic paint: artist-quality paints such as Golden, Holbein, Utrecht, Tri-Art, Windsor-Newton, Blick Artist Arcylics, etc. You may supplement these with student-grade paints. 
  • Disposable palette: pad of paper style, 9”x12”
  • Drawing materials: pencils, various pens and markers, graphite sticks, watercolor pencils and crayons, charcoal, (any of these that you care to use)
  • Brushes: bring a variety, some watercolor brushes, smaller flat ones, glue brushes
  • Brayer: soft rubber, 2” or 3”
  • Spray bottle for water
  • Big roll of absorbent paper towels
  • Stamps and stencils of your choice (optional)
  • Stash of collage papers : think pattern and color, not image or texture.

$5 Materials fee includes:
  • Loads of cheap drawing paper for making collage papers
  • Drawing materials to share
  • Pearls of wisdom
  • Chocolate, if you're good.

I highly recommend that you order your supplies online well before the workshop.  The local art supply store does not carry many of the items on this list.
