Open Painting Gaming Miniatures 101 with Dain Q. Gore, April 28th, 2019 1-4pm
My dear and talented friend, Dain Q. Gore, will have open-painting time at Puppet Pie for you to pick his brain while you paint gaming miniatures (if you're unfamiliar, think Dungeons & Dragons or Pathfinder. If that doesn't help you, think very tiny detailed sculptures...and if that doesn't help you, look at the photos of the minis that Dain has painted).
WHAT: Come in and paint minis as a group! Art professor Dain Q. Gore and captain of his D&D Minis Painting Coalition (that last part is made-up) will be on hand to paint along with you through an open studio session of painting miniatures. There will be no specific instruction; this is not a beginner workshop, but rather open studio time.
TOOLS REQUIRED: It is BYOM (Bring Your Own Minis)--and paint, and brushes--unless you don't have any, in which case Dain will have some paint available, but it will be a surprise!
Dain's favorite brand of brushes are available for purchase at Puppet Pie!
WHEN: Sunday, April 28th, 2019, 1pm-4pm
WHERE:Puppet Pie Studio, 1301 Grand Avenue, Studio 4, Phoenix, AZ 85007. The entrance is on the south side of the building (on McKinley), to the left of the heart mural. Follow the signs on McKinley. (You can also find a map through the menu navigation at the top of this page: Contact > Visit.) Doors open 15-20 minutes prior to the workshop.
SKILLS REQUIRED: Sitting respectfully for up to 3 hours; some mini-painting experience required; painting small surfaces with small tools (fine motor skills); and staring at something very small for a long period of time (bring your readers!)
WHO: This workshop is designed for well-behaved teens and adults.
About the Instructor: Dain is a painter, art professor, and part-time puppeteer. In his spare time he paints “toy soldier” fantasy and sci-fi gaming miniatures, which he has been doing since 1988. He specializes in bright and ostentatious color schemes, and prefers painting Citadel and Reaper miniatures. Mr. Gore has shown his art from Beijing, China to Meow Wolf in Santa Fe and has lectured at ASU and performed with The Great Arizona Puppet Theater.
Extra Details: One purchase is required for each person in attendance.
You do need to be in the Phoenix area for the workshop. If you don't live in the area (i.e. you have a billing address that is outside of the Phoenix, Arizona area) and you do plan to attend, please contact me to let me know you'll be attending, otherwise I'll politely cancel the sale for you (as I just simply can't ship Dain to you, as much as I wish I could).
