Introducing Pretty Papers Online Workshop!

Golden Working Artist Chris Cozen and Mixed Media Artist Julie Prichard have teamed up once again to offer you another great online painting workshop! “Pretty Papers” will teach students numerous easy to follow techniques for using Golden Interference and Iridescent paints to create a variety of decorative papers. Use these “pretty papers” for collage, art journaling, mail art, greeting cards, wall art, tags…anything your paper crafting needs desire!

Interference and Iridescent paints create unusual beautiful effects on paper or any other substrate when combined with acrylic paint. After you finish our class, you will have learned how to incorporate these products into your painting repertoire.

This mini-workshop will teach students how to create 15 different paper looks via HD video and a glorious PDF. The video is subtitled which makes this class friendly to hearing impaired students. The PDF follows the video schedule making it a ready reference while you are working.

Within 24 hours of receipt of your class payment, students will be emailed a link to our teaching network. The entire class will be available to you at that time. Paint the day away!

Once you are finished with class, you do not have to leave. Students will continue to have access to the class with no foreseeable end date….you can paint at your own speed and come back and paint over and over again too!

We encourage your participation in our network. Students will have access to both Chris and Julie daily. We will answer all of your questions in a very timely manner. We also encourage all students to share their artwork in the picture galleries.  We believe that artists need an opportunity to dialogue with each other and we have set up the network to support this interaction between artists no matter where they live in the world.

Chris Cozen and Julie Prichard have learned and painted together for  several years and are thrilled to be able to bring this class to the online community.
