Fingerpainting is Not Just For Kids

Suzanne Foxwell will present an interactive program on finger painting.  She has recently used this technique on some of her landscape paintings and has found it to be very freeing and fun.  By using a gloved hand and acrylic paints with a gloss gel, she would like to encourage attendees to join her in creating a beautiful landscape painting on canvas.  We might also introduce other tools such as pallet knife, sponge, etc for different textures, as we work on our masterpiece from a fresh perspective.

All that Glitters: An Introduction to Gilding

Gilding is the practice of using incredibly thin sheets of gold to create the illusion of solid material. You've seen gilding on picture frames, furniture and even the State House dome! Joseph Rice is a gilder with many years of experience working with new and restoration projects, including frames, mirrors and eglomise (gilding on glass). Learn more about the process of working with gold. Joseph will bring samples of the materials and tools used, demonstrate technique, and even let attendees try their hand.
