Every artist needs a surface on which to work and should be aware of how to properly prepare that surface to get the optimal performance for their desired media. In this comprehensive demo, we’ll be talking all things canvas. Topics will include choosing the right canvas for your needs, primed or unprimed, cotton duck or linen. Also how to stretch said canvas. Should you use light weight or heavy duty stretcher bars? Tips on how to tighten a loose, sagging canvas will be shown as well as alternate substrates. Presented by our own Williamson Brasfield, this overview is something every artist should be acquainted with. Some of the products used will be Masterpiece Tight’n’Up Canvas Spray, Jack Richeson heavy duty stretchers, Liquitex Gesso and Fredrix/Tara lightweight stretcher bars.
The demo will be held Saturday, August 22nd at A.I. Friedman’s 18th St. location from 2pm-4pm. Stop by the store to sign up for this informative session. Check out our store calendar for upcoming events.
