Splashing Acrylics – with Ming Franz

July 15, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Join us for this innovative 4-week zoom online class with the artist, Ming Franz. Join Ming online as she works from her home studio where she will demonstrate and lecture the first hour and look at student’s work offering guidance and critique for the second hour. Ming will also be in contact with students via email during the week. Students will learn the unique features of abstract acrylic splash painting on canvas, wood panel and gesso boards as well as composition, special effects, and the fine art of pouring. Students will respond to each step of the pouring process deciding if the image can be enhanced with more paint moving toward whatever the imagination sees in the heart of the work. Students will finish one or more paintings and experience group discussions and critiques.

Ming Franz

Ming Franz is widely recognized for her “splash” painting which combines primary watercolor and Chinese ink. In recent years she has experimented with acrylics on watercolor paper, canvas, and panels, developing her award-winning skills. Among the many awards she has received is the esteemed Grand Prize in the International Artist magazine’s challenge in Abstract /Experimental Art.

The artist was born in Taiwan where she discovered her talent at an early age. She has traveled and studied art for decades and has become a sought-after instructor. She now resides in New Mexico. She, like Georgia O’Keeffe, one of her favorite artists, has been transformed by the pristine desert light and the stunning Southwest landscape.

Ming is a faculty member of the New Mexico Art League.  She is a Signature Member of the New Mexico Watercolor Society, Golden Paints Company Certified Artist and Educator, and member of the National Watercolor Society, Sumi-e Society of America, Chinese American Art Development Foundation, and the American Society Association of Chinese Art.
