Writing a Meaningful Artist's Statement

A 4-week workshop with a Zoom every Thursday (we skip the week of 9/26/24).

Writing a good, honest, and meaningful artist’s statement isn't easy. Go beyond the generic and tap into the soul of your artwork. This four-session workshop guides you through a profound exploration of your creative motivations and inspirations. Unearth the resonant themes that make your art uniquely yours, and distill them into a powerful, authentic artist's statement that leaves a lasting impression.

The Grammar of Abstract Composition In Acrylic Painting and Collage

Does “composition” conjure a set of rules that you should be paying attention to in your work? Do you strive for a “pleasing composition,” and is that enough to make a good work of art? Join us in this workshop where we'll approach composition as a playful and exploratory exploration, steering away from strict rules or guidelines. We’ll take a few visual elements and experiment with value, scale, arrangement, color, transparency, and more, to see how these aspects impact our images.

Abstract Collage: Creating Compositions with Tissue Paper

This workshop is on Skillshare. Composition is perhaps the most elusive aspect of abstract painting. Since there is no specific object depicted in an abstract piece, composition -  the way the elements work together on the canvas or page -  takes a central role. In this Skillshare class I want to demystify some of the main components of abstract composition, making it accessible to anyone.
