In this 2 hour workshop with artist Laura Denny, students will learn and utilize Andy Warhol’s blot printing technique to spontaneously build layers of paint as a background upon which to build a painting. Blot prints are created by transferring scribbles and blobs of acrylic paint from a sheet of tracing paper to canvas.

Liquid acrylic paint can be purchased (Cheap Delta Ceramcoat sets at Michaels)  in a squeeze bottle or liquid acrylic paint can be transferred to squeeze bottles (to be found at the dollar store).
