Intermediate Yupo Painting 1F23

Age Group: 
Teens (17+), Adults

Join for an Open Studio class in painting on Yupo, a synthetic paper made from polypropylene resin.

For those who have taken prior Yupo workshops with Ginny Zanger or have experience working with Yupo paper, this series will function as an open studio, allowing you to go beyond the basics, making a series of images in class.

Participants will be encouraged and supported to continue to experiment with tools and techniques and to share. Ginny Zanger will continue to share some of her favorite ways for letting the magic happen on this amazing surface.

*No class the evening before Thanksgiving


Limit 8 students


My favorite aspects of this class: 1. Ginny's teaching - she is a Master painter!  2. Being with real human beings again (yay!) and 3. the creative, no-pressure process...  I also want to express my gratitude for the class being accessible to my hearing loss.  Honestly, we were just getting started - we all want to continue with a Yupo Shop or studio taught by Ginny or one of her own advanced students at Eliot.  This class was more exploration than technique and I'd love to keep exploring!

I took this class because I wanted to learn new techniques and try using new materials.  The ratio of students to teacher was great, and four weeks was just the right amount of time.  I'm excited to have learned how to work with a new medium!
