What are Acrylic Skins? How can you use them to create an artwork that is completely unique?

An Acrylic Skin is a dry acrylic film that can be made of paint, medium or a combination of paint and medium, that is not attached to any substrate.

Making and collaging your own acrylic skins offers a flexibility in designing your paintings that is truly freeing.

The process of layering Acrylic Skins as collage elements is simple and fun, yet offers endless creative possibilities.

Expand your bag of tricks and create seductive surfaces with texture, depth and rich colours.

NOTE: This workshop is a perfect compliment to Picture Perfect - Acrylic Photo Transfer Magic. 

Instructor Bio: Lori Lukasewich is a professional fine artist and art instructor. She has been painting and exhibiting her work on a regular basis, in both commercial and public galleries consistently since 1984. She has a wide and varied background in many aspects of the applied arts from palaeontological restoration and movie and film properties to jewelry design and production.

Her first childrenʼs book, The Night Fire, which she both wrote and illustrated was published in 2001 by Stoddart Kids and was a recommended choice of the Canadian Childrenʼs Book Council. She has since illustrated 2 other childrenʼs books. Her painting Shimmering: Green & Violet was a finalist in the The Artist's Magazines Annual Art Competiton 2007 - Still Life category. Her work has been featured in Avenue Magazine. In Calgary her work is represented by Axis Contemporary Art.

Loriʼs priority as an instructor is to create the most exciting and beneficial situation for art learning for both her students and herself. Her teaching practice focuses primarily on the fundamentals of art making with serious encouragement and development for the authentic vision and voice of the individual artist.
