Abstract Drawing and Painting Workshop
Monday thru Thursday
This course is designed to de-mystify abstract art through a series of exercises and projects that focus on line, shape, color, and texture. Abstract drawing and painting represent a shift from recording the visible to expressing our impressions of what we see. The possibilities of finding inspiration for abstract works are endless and can be found, for example, in nature, music and architecture. We will explore stylistic, historical, technical, and formal aspects of abstraction and the potential for developing personal expression and style.
We urge you, if you are able, to be fully up-to-date on vaccinations, including boosters. Available vaccination sites can be found here.
