We are a new arts and crafts group in town called "The Mad Crafters."

Once a month we put on free arts and crafts events at The Madeira Beach Rec Center taught be local artists and volunteers. 

In September we have a wonderful free event.

This will not be a regular workshop, but we will have a world renowned artist, Kevin Tobin, representative of Golden Artist Colors Acrylic Paint, as our guest. Kevin will demo many of the products that Golden has for an informative, funny, and not to be missed event. We will be taking home free products and samples that will be supplied and that will be in the demo so we will know how to use them. This will be a 90-minute to two-hour presentation.

Everyone will need to RSVP so we know how many will be there and how many free products and samples for Kevin to bring. The event is open to the public.

Please join us as we explore the unlimited possibilities of Golden Artist Colors Acrylic paint. We will cover a wide variety of topics and products including Heavy Body, Fluid Acrylics, Williamsburg Oil Paints, and QoR watercolors. Printmaking techniques utilizing Golden's OPEN Acrylic, artist made printing plates using collagraphic processes, watercolor printing and a whole lot more. Given the time constraints, we will only be able to briefly touch upon the various techniques but every artist attendee should come away from the event with a brain jam-packed with new possibilities.
