Palette Knife Painting WorkshopKevin Gibbins demonstrates palette knife techniques.
Thursday, September 14, 10am to noon
Eva Caten Remington Education Center Classroom
323 Washington Street, Ogdensburg

Local artist Kevin Gibbins will introduce participants to a number of palette knife techniques using oil on canvas board, and show students how to create a painting from start to finish using only palette knives.


Palette knife painting describes the technique of applying paint to a surface with the blade of an artist’s knife. Using a palette knife can create a variety of effects, from textured impasto work, to sweeping areas of flat color, to sharp, refined details. Painting with a palette knife is fast-paced, exciting, and fun; participants will leave the workshop with a finished oil painting.


All skill levels are welcome, and materials will be provided, though artists are welcome to bring their own materials. The cost of the class is $15 for members of the Remington Museum and $25 for non-members. The class is limited to 12 participants. Call 315-393-2425 or email desmond at fredericremington dot org to ask questions. UPDATE: This class is currently full; follow the Eva Caten Remington Education Center on Facebook to stay up to date on future class offerings.
