The GOLDEN Certified Working Artist Program

The GOLDEN Certified Working Artists are independent, professional artists who have undergone an extensive, GOLDEN-directed six month, three phase acrylic product education. The training consists of an in-depth study of the technical aspects of acrylic, recommended archival painting practices, and a vast exposure to teaching tools for artists ranging from beginner watercolorists, mixed media artists to accomplished professionals. The GOLDEN Certified Working Artists are contracted with GOLDEN to conduct lectures on GOLDEN Acrylic products. The GOLDEN Certified Working Artists present lectures at universities, colleges, art organizations and partner retail locations. The lectures are educational, technicaly informative and inspirational, covering the range of GOLDEN acrylic products and their uses. Each GOLDEN Certified Working Artist offers a wide range of Hands-on workshops where the possibilities of acrylics are explored.

Openings for new positions in the GOLDEN Certified Working Artist Program are reviewed in December of each year. When openings become available, the geographical locations will be posted on the Web site, along with a link for applications.
