Palette knife painting workshop Friday at Remington Art Museum in Ogdensburg
Monday, October 23, 2017 - 11:31 am

OGDENSBURG -- The Frederic Remington Art Museum, 303 Washington St. will offer a hands-on workshop on palette knife painting from 10 a.m. to noon Friday, Oct. 27.

In this follow-up to his landscape class, local artist Kevin Gibbins will introduce a number of palette knife techniques using oil on canvas board, and will show participants how to create their own seascape painting from start to finish using only palette knives.

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. Call 315-393-2425 or email [email protected] to ask questions or sign up, or visit to register online.
