ABOUT LIZ WALKER

picture of instructor

Liz Walker, who creates award-winning acrylic and marbled paintings in her studio in Portland OR, has been teaching throughout Oregon and Washington for nearly 20 years. She received her BA in Art from Trinity University in San Antonio, TX. Her work has been exhibited widely in regional and national shows, and she was awarded Signature member in the National Watercolor Society (NWS) in 2015. Watercolor Artist Magazine featured an article about Liz’s acrylic marbling technique in their Aug. 2016 issue and her paintings have been published in the North Light publications AcrylicWorks4 and AcrylicWorks6. Birds and figures are her favorite subject matter, and she produces hundreds of paintings each year. Liz never gives up on a so-called “failed” painting, but puts them aside for months and revisits them later; in fact, many of her “refurbished” paintings have gone on to win awards in national shows.

ABOUT THE CLASSES

Using a 12x12” pre-painted canvas supplied by instructor, we will stamp, paint, stencil and collage to repurpose and give new life to an old painting. Learn how this time-honored technique creates textures and layers that make a painting more complex and interesting. Never throw out a so called “failed” painting again—instead, revive it with this easy to learn, innovative technique.
