Anniversary Special Workshops - Abstract Art

As it is the first year anniversary of The Shed, I thought I would offer some really cheap workshops - 1: To say thank you to all those who have paid for classes and supported The Shed this year, and 2: To try and get new people to try some taster sessions to see what we offer in the workshop.

The first of these classes was to make a funky piece of abstract art.

First of all we covered an art canvas in acrylic metallic paint - I am a huge fan of metallic paint, it just seems to add a whole new dimension to anything you use it on, and who doesn't love a little bit of shimmer and shine?

Then, once that was dry, we added blobby lines with a hot glue gun.  You don't have to have a perfect line with this, the raggier the better I think.

A final coat of paint over the glue finished the pieces off, and ta-dah,  perfect wall art!

There are loads of possibilities with this technique, try it for yourself.
