Class Description

Instructor:  Katie Phillips
Fee:  $68.00

Have you ever admired a painting that had tons of texture and unique blends of color? Chances are it was created with an impasto painting method often done using a palette knife. The knives allow you to use thick layers of paint, leave highly visible marks and apply them in a loose, energetic manner.  This 2 1/2 hour workshop will show you how to get started with palette knife painting and different strategies for creating a range of effects.

  • We’ll start by discussing different palette knives and mediums
  • Next, we’ll talk about techniques to using palette knives
  • Then, we’ll do a painting exercise designed to loosen up and get comfortable with the palette knives
  • Finally, we’ll walk step-by-step through a paintin

You will leave with one painting and knowledge to start palette knife painting on your own.
