Class description: This two-day abstract art acrylic workshop is about understanding and challenging the grid structure, a very basic form of abstract art. Through exercises we will start with the familiar grid and push the boundaries, going beyond to discover new ways to enliven the image and make it your own. We will do several exercises to give you new techniques and ideas. We will make our own collage papers through easy monotype techniques and put together amazing collages that will be ready to frame.
There will be plenty of time to create your own art works. This workshop is a great chance to create, rebel and break though into wild creativity. No experience necessary. Come join a great group of like-minded artists for a fun learning weekend of Creating, Connecting and Community. Acrylics, mixed media, monotype, collage.
