Amy Brakeman Livezey

Discover acrylic paint’s more expressive and beguiling qualities as you find depth and richness in this medium. Explore new ways to apply paint and incorporate these techniques into your own artistic style.

Techniques in Acrylic Paint

Amy will encourage you as you learn the techniques to find your own voice.

Workshop Description

We will focus on abstract approaches for demonstration purposes, but the techniques you practice will be applicable to any subject or style that suits your own unique voice. You will work on 5-6 panels throughout the workshop that are meant primarily as practice pieces where you can try out different techniques. By the third day we will be focusing on bringing one or two of your panels towards completion.

About Amy

“My paintings are explorations of history using paint, photographic finds, pieces of paper old and new, and a variety of tools to build up and then mine the images for a fresh look at the past. Layers and abstraction serve as an homage to the complexity of this endeavor – the chaos of the moment and our ever changing cultural perspectives.”

I asked Amy Brakeman Livezey to be my mentor because of her phenomenal art. She combines abstraction with realistic historical images in an evocative and exciting way.

Amy’s relaxed and playful approach to Acrylic painting teaches and encourages as I learn techniques for Design, Value and Color Harmony. I have always felt supported and motivated even when I bring the roughest beginning or most awkward stage of my paintings.
One of my very best decisions has been to ask Amy Livezey to mentor me. My work in Acrylics is stronger and I feel more confident in my intention and abilities since starting my mentorship. It has been a joy to play and work with her!

After an almost 30 year hiatus of not doing art, I recently decided to start up the creative process. In the last 2 years, I’ve taken at least a dozen classes. I have to say that spending the afternoon in Amy Brakeman’s studio was my favorite artistic experience. EVER!! First of all, Amy is a very gifted artist and just seeing her work is an inspirational treat. But she was so well organized and had so many tools and methods to try. And she really emphasized that while we may or may not walk out with a masterpiece, the day was about allowing ourselves to experiment and have fun! And there was absolutely nothing that you could not ask her…She readily shared all of her knowledge and would even do on-the-fly unplanned demos just to answer a question. Whether you’re an experienced artist, someone just getting back into the swing, or a newbie…Amy will make you feel relaxed and ready to have a fabulous time creating your very own kind of fantastic!
