NEW Product: GOLDEN High Flow Acrylics

ARCH now carries the full 49 color line of GOLDEN High Flow Acrylics including 4oz bottles and sets. High Flow acrylics come in a wide range of high-intensity colors including transparent, iridescent and fluorescent varieties. They are thin enough to be added to refillable markers, technical pens and airbrushes or can be painted and used to stain or pour onto most painting surfaces. High Flow produce beautiful stains and washes, but can also be used to create intricate detail with small brushes or technical pens.

High Flow Acrylics have an ink-like consistency and a high pigment load, consistent with the rest of GOLDEN's acrylic products. They maintain their brilliancy even when diluted, resembling a glaze when thinned out. Used at their full strength, they are similar to an ink, but tend to be more brilliant in color and maintain a crisper edge than some inks.

Next Friday: Sketch Up Friday, Feb 21st 5:30-8PM

Friday February 21st, ARCH will be hosting it's first community model-sketching event. We will have costumed models posing for you to sketch or paint from. This month we will have San Francisco Bellydance Mama, Jill Parker and Foxglove Sweethearts dance troupe member Karina Tribal-Mexico as models! There will be plenty of unique poses, beautiful inspiration and decadent costumes to be inspired by.

Participants should bring their own supplies and drawing board or you can purchase them here at ARCH. You should feel free to draw or paint, whatever inspires you. No photography please. There will be light refreshments and plenty of inspiration! First session with Jill Parker will begin promptly at 6:00PM and the second session with Karina will begin at 7:00PM.

This is a $5.00 suggested donation event to help cover model fees and we will be offering a discount on art supplies when you donate. We hope to make this a monthly event!

If you are interested in being a model for this event in the future, please contact Jenna at
