Acrylic Layers Workshop Mini-Series










Robyn Ryan’s Acrylic Layers Workshop












Free and Empower Your Creativity in a New and Fresh way!



The Acrylic Layers Process Consists of Working With Physically Distinct and Separated Layers in Developing a Painting.  This Results in Creating Actual Dimensionality, Seeing Through Physical Layers to What Lies Beneath, Hiding Things, Discovering Things…



Let me be your guide into this incredibly FUN,


of my Acrylic Layers Process!

The Acrylic Layers Approach Frees You to Explore and Express Your Creativity by Removing That “Hope Buster” Called “Expectation” and Opening You and Your Creative Process Up to So Many New and Exciting Possibilities!



The Mini-Series consists of five weekly sessions ~ 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Next Session Dates Coming Soon!


During the five four-hour sessions you will learn:


~ The overall Acrylic Layers process

~ Five approaches for under-paintings

~ Five variations for acrylic gel application

~ Six variations for art media application on the gelled surface

~ Subtractive “sanding back” and “erasing” techniques to expose earlier layers

~ A framework for making decisions in the layering process


~ Aids to move past barriers and explore more boldly

~ How to bring new life to a “less than favorite” piece of artwork

~ How to finish an Acrylic Layers piece for display

~ Alternative applications to integrate into your creative approach



You will produce several acrylic layers pieces using the different under-painting, gel application, and art media variations 


You are absolutely encouraged to make more if you are so inspired and inclined!


The new thought processes you are empowered with enable you to tailor to your own personal creative process

“Awesome! I learned a great deal! Better than my college course!”

I loved Robyn’s Acrylic Layers course. I have limited painting experience and was nervous that I wouldn’t be able to keep up.

Robyn immediately put me at ease and provided encouragement at each step.

She provided plenty of time to experiment on multiple pieces and offered welcome guidance when I got stuck.

I enjoyed the class so much, I’ve taken it a second time and look forward to taking another class with her.
