MISSION/VISION STATEMENT

Palo Verde Artists brings artists together, creating a supportive atmosphere through education, growth opportunities, and friendship. We look forward to meeting you and having you join us in our endeavors.

Palo Verde Artists welcome visitors and new members to enjoy our monthly artist gathering and demonstrations, typically held in the Sundial East Hall, the first Monday of the month, October through April, from 12:00 PM to 2:30 PM.

Feel free to stop in our club studio; we are located on the upper level of Sundial. Talk with our artists, and view some of our artists’ work. It is enlightening and a fun experience.

  • Classes are offered in watercolor, oil and acrylic, colored pencils, pastels, and drawing for artists at all skill and experience levels by well-known and experienced teachers in different media. You will not be disappointed.
  • Our club encourages sharing ideas, experiments, and critiques with other artists working in multiple media.
  • There are many opportunities for club members to exhibit and sell their work in the club gallery and several shows throughout the year.

Alcohol Ink Basics: Flow and Control with Eileen Moore
Jan 26 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Alcohol Ink Basics: Flow and Control with Eileen Moore @ Zoom

The basics of Alcohol Ink with Eileen Moore.

This is a Zoom event.

A friendly, fun get together of members interested in the medium of Alcohol Ink. Materials and techniques will be covered in this informal event.

BASICS of ALCOHOL INK: FLOW and CONTROL

This will be a four-part series with one workshop each month beginning January 26. We will explore this medium for its brilliant color and techniques to achieving amazing effects. We will create abstracts, florals, landscapes in realistic and atmospheric styles.

We can always find a way to blow our budget getting started in a new medium but what follows are the basic supplies and suggestions for what you will need:

Alcohol Ink: 3 colors, a light, medium and dark. Ranger has tri-packs. I suggest the package called “Nature Walk”. Better, Piñata Exciter pack comes in 9 colors and includes a metallic ink.

Substrate: Any non-porous surface

Cheapest: a 4 x 4 glazed ceramic white tile OR photo paper that has no printing on the back.

Modest: Legion Yupo Paper 5 x 7 74lb. Amazon $6.99

Investment: Kirkland Photopaper 150 sheets 8.5 x 11 at Costco, also smaller at Amazon.

Other: Glass, graphix, Nara, vinyl.

Alcohol: 91% or 99% Isopropyl alcohol. Available at drugstores.

Brushes, small medium and large or water brush pens.

Condiment bottles with nozzle to hold alcohol or small plastic bottle with nozzle.

A small glass jar or two with lids

Hair dryer

Rubber gloves (optional for first session)

Work Surface: A plastic table cloth or drop cloth or smooth plastic placemat.

GO SHOPPING WITH COUPONS AT HOBBY LOBBY, JOANN and MICHEALS.

Each month we will share our progress, learn new techniques, and discuss tools for further explorations always with limited budgets in mind as many household items can be used with this medium.

Instructions to connect to the class will be sent 2 days before the class.

Painting Florals for Beginners Class with Velvet Tetrault Gibbons 5 weeks
Feb 16 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Painting Florals for Beginners Class with Velvet Tetrault Gibbons 5 weeks

This is an online class using ZOOM.

Cost $60 non-refundable
  • Instruction 1 – 3 pm
  • Additional paint time with Velvet 3 pm – 4 pm
  • Sign up and pay on our Website. To order supplies at a discount, contact Velvet at velsvtetra@cox.net
    • The paint is Acrylic only
    • The best equipment setup for the class is for everyone to use the same paint and extender. I use Heritage paints and extender because they work for the technique I use. If a student doesn’t have that brand and can’t afford to buy it, then they can try using the brand of paint and extender that they have. If a student wants to get the Heritage paints, I can get them for her/him for 20% off online. So let me know in advance of the class and I will order them right away.
    • I am keeping Paint Colors down to a minimum to limit expenses. We will be using a lot of paint. Here are the colors needed:
  • Titanium White
  • Napthol Red Light
  • Red Violet
  • Hansa Yellow
  • Yellow Ochre
  • Burnt Sienna
  • Phthalo Blue
    • For practice Surfaces to paint on: The most inexpensive and acceptable surface to paint on is 1/8″ hardboard. 2′ x 4′ sheets can be found cheap at Home Depot; have them cut it into approximately 12″ x 12″ pieces and you will have 16 sides to practice on. Do not use a canvas surface. Only smooth surface.
    • Brushes. They should be Flats. They can be synthetic brushes or springy watercolor brushes. The important part is that they hold their edge and don’t splay. Sizes should be one of each: 3/4 inch, 5/16 inch, 4/16(2/8) inch, 3/16 or 1/8 inch. For short handle, I use mostly Fusion brushes. If for some reason, you don’t have one of the needed size brushes, I can get Fusion brushes 20% off
    • Prep before class
    o Base coat the hardboard on both sides with gesso.

We will send the connection invitation to your email address 2 days before the event for each of the event dates.

The class is an online class beginning Tuesday, February 16, 1:00 – 4:00 pm It is a five weeks class.
Dates: 2/16; 2/23; 3/2; 3/9 and 3/16 the last class.
Cost $60 non-refundable
