Wood Board Art
Hartford Studio Offers Board Art for Creative Artists
A true artist is willing to experiment and take risks with their craft. What better way to test your limits than with wood board art? This new opportunity from Creative License in Hartford is just what you need to expand your artistic horizons.
Board art is very similar to painting canvas. The difference is your board is made from real wood planks sealed together. The natural wood grain surface provides extra resistance to paint to make very piece truly unique. While canvas is completely white, these boards have faint colors from knots and swirls in the wood. Get creative by incorporating these natural patterns into your art!
There are two types of boards available at Creative License. The first is a traditional “canvas” style, with uniform corners and edges. The second has uneven planks to add extra dimension to your art piece. Our Creative Consultants will help you get started with paint brushes, easels, and whatever else you need to get started. Don't worry about making a mess - we clean it up for you!
Alternative Painting Surfaces Results in Unique Art
Board art looks and feels different from canvas. Aside from being a sturdier painting surface, the wood absorbs the paint and dries faster than on canvas. This means you might have to work quickly to get the colors you want. Or take advantage of wood and create a "stain" to give your board a richer background color. It's all up to you!
Another advantage of wood board paintings is they can be displayed without a frame. Each board has wood pieces on the back to allow easy display around your home or work. Boards are incredibly long lasting, making them great gifts for all occasions.
Wood was once the preferred surface for painters. Bring it back with your own painting projects at the Creative License studio in Hartford! You can walk right in whenever you feel like creating or schedule a private event for an after-hours party.
