"Contemporary Abstract Art: Letting Loose"
June 3, 2024
 

Embrace experimentation! This workshop was created to help aspiring artists become more confident, allowing the beginner abstract painter to take chances and have fun! Experimenting with paint and techniques is vital to the creative process, so enjoying the act of painting is just as important as the outcome. Students will experiment and create several pieces throughout the workshop using acrylic paints and mediums on paper and canvas. What's important is, not to go home with a masterpiece, but to learn to let your natural instincts take over with no fear of making a mistake. After all it's only paint so you can always change it if you don't like it! So, why not get started now?

Various ways to measure, make comparisons, define values, see shapes, and identify colors are explored. Regardless of current abilities, completing this workshop significantly transforms the participant’s capacity to view the world as with “new eyes.” With improved powers of perception, they can create artworks of ever-increasing levels of expertise!
