Join Golden Artist Colors on Social Media! 

August already!? Before we know it, classes will start up again and artists will be restocking their studios for a new season of painting. On social media, we are shifting gears to focus on high utility products we call Studio Elements. This month, we’ll share videos and posts about these products which include black and white paints for GOLDEN and Williamsburg, GOLDEN Gesso and Mediums such as GAC 900 and Glazing Liquid, and QoR Watercolor Grounds and the 24 Color Set. 

We’ll also discuss varnishing watercolor paintings in the run up to September’s Breaking Glass show at The Painting Center in NYC. 

You can view our complete video schedule for August and download a shareable PDF by clicking here.
