This is an energizing and informative abstract painting class with an emphasis on experimentation & creative process. Students will learn the fundamentals of abstract painting. Building on this foundation, each class will progressively introduce new techniques and skills. Techniques include glazing, layering, removal, staining, lifting of paints as well as layering in collage elements. How to achieve line, depth, texture & interest in the paintings will be covered. We will be using liquid & heavy body acrylics, as well as acrylic mediums and gels and paper collage elements. Each week builds on the next with a demonstration at the start of each class and plenty of time to practice and experiment with the techniques & concepts shown.
