Create an opulent piece of artwork!

Using specialty acrylic paints, unique materials, and glazing techniques, learn how mixed media and texture can help create glowing 3D illusions that make your paintings sparkle and shine!


Sharlena will demonstrate and guide you through building ‘stained glass’ glazes, using interference and iridescent colours for gorgeous accents, illustrating how mixed media and texture can help create glowing 3D illusions. These techniques and specialty art materials can be used in the whole creative process or to simply create gorgeous grounds on surfaces for future work. Filled with artistic magic, this afternoon adventure will revitalize your enthusiasm and inspire new possibilities in the exploration of acrylic paint, visionary colour, and expressionism in your work. No matter your style or favourite subject matter, from beginner to advanced, all levels of creators are welcome to participate, and are guaranteed to learn something new and have fun in the process!


Sharlena Wood is known for her art material product knowledge, enthusiasm, and support in the local artistic community with Curry’s Art Store/Art School, Wallack’s Art Supplies, Tri-Art Acrylics, and worldwide with Craftsy. Sharlena continues to share her passion through collaborative interactive art for events, art instruction, and creative endeavours in Toronto, Ontario.
