Have you ever wanted to try abstract painting or further develop your current abstract painting style? In this class we will use your existing skills, interests and knowledge to tap into your unique creative processes and develop your own abstract language. This class will be a safe environment within which you will be encouraged take creative risks and not worry about making mistakes. In fact, “mistakes” often result in your best work! Whether you are interested in dynamic expressionism like Jackson Pollack or peaceful color fields like Mark Rothko, this class will help you to develop your own unique vision. Throughout the class, we will look at the work of well-known abstract painters for understanding and inspiration. With the lessons you learn about tapping into and utilizing your own creative process, you will develop your own unique vision, a vision you will be able to pursue with whatever artistic path you follow in the future. Class limited to 6 students.
