Texture Trifecta
with Sandra Duran Wilson 

May 5-7, 2017 in Austin, TX


I can't stay away. I will be returning to the wonderful Ampersand Gallery in Buda (next to Austin) for a 3 day workshop. We will be hitting the trifecta by combining implied and applied textures, building deep surfaces and carving back into them and adding elements we make. If you like texture, this is the class for you. We will have 3 days to build our surfaces on the Ampersand panels using acrylic pastes, gels, plaster, clay products, faux concrete and even glass. I will show you how to create some unique "metallic" papers to incorporate into your layers. Come join the fun and Ampersand has some GREAT deals for us following the workshop. I look forward to sharing a lot of new paints, materials and products with you. All supplies are included. Simply bring your brushes and tools.

 March 19-20, 2017


 Santa Fe, New Mexico





Having experiences is what travel is all about. Add some exciting and unique adventures to
your life with an art holiday during Spring Break in Santa Fe. I love to combine the earth elements of Venetian plaster and beeswax. These two play well together and result in some of the most luminous textures; with a depth and glow that just can't be achieved any other way.

 I did write a book on Acrylic painting for Encaustic Effects, and it was inspired by using 
plaster and wax together. Join me and find out what all the fun is about. Sign up soon because this class fills up fast. All supplies are provided! If you are interested in both the 3 day and this 2 day, there is a special price for both. Just ask!
