Learn how to create a successful abstract painting by exploring your emotional inner landscape! We will create rich textures and experiment with innovative mark-making techniques to build up our paintings.
There will also be an emphasis on color theory and choosing successful color combinations to achieve an overall desired effect. We will also focus on figuring out when our painting is complete and will view work by other contemporary artists. Bring your own landscape photos or Rebecca will provide some for you to use. No painting experience is required and all levels are welcome. Students are responsible for bringing their own supplies. Please pack a lunch or one can be ordered out.
