This can be a one-day to five-day workshop.
When we say “abstract painting”, we usually mean a painting that is not in the business of representing an object outside itself. An abstract painting can evoke mood or suggest specific reference, but it can also be about painting itself.
In this one-day workshop we’ll focus on the elements of visual language - line, shape, color, texture, pattern, value, etc. - and explore how these elements relate to one another within the boundaries of a painting. You will learn a variety of playful and accessible techniques for applying paint to paper, and discover how to create variety and contrast, layering and repetition, to make in making unique, personal abstract compositions.
