Fearless Metallics Workshop is a modern twist to using metallic paints, powders and gold leaf.
Join professional artist Samantha daSilva as she shares her unique method of painting: Rollers rather than brushes, tables instead of easels, lots of paint and water, canvas manipulation and plaster, salt, sand and wood shavings to create ethereal textured abstracts.
No previous experience necessary, just an open mind and an open heart.
