ABC’S OF ABSTRACTION
Join Ruth for an in-depth exploration of abstract painting. You'll learn how limiting your means of expression can free you to explore painting ideas. Refine your visual language and experiment with simple exercises for unleashing creative potential. Discover ways to get new ideas, and where to start on your journey to painting more abstractly.
We cover both the elements of design and the 'mental game' in art-making. Using acrylic and collage, we will explore shape, line, color and texture to craft vibrant paintings that stir the emotions. You will learn organizing principles, painting tips and techniques for overcoming self-doubt and indecision.
