Registration is closed
This workshop will educate students on the major themes and give a brief history of abstraction in painting.  The student will have a chance to respond to some of the more dominant styles of abstract art by making quick , small pieces that mimic the most influential styles. The majority of the class will be spent working on a larger piece that will explore relationships, either personal relationships, spatial relationships or color relationships depending on the student's inspiration.  Students are expected to have an understanding of color theory and perspective and are encouraged to bring in any abstract works they are "stuck" on as well as examples of abstract art they are inspired by.
