Take a leap with us into the unknown in this 2 day intensive abstract acrylic workshop.  Through a series of structured exercises designed to help you loosen up, we will explore various elements of a non-objective painting including color, composition, structure and eye flow, line, value and texture using acrylic paint and a variety of drawing and mark making tools, both conventional and unconventional.  We will work on archival paper and unstretched canvas.  Bring your artistic passion, the willingness to try something different, experiment, and gain a new perspective.   Class size limited to 6 will allow participants to paint larger if they wish to do so. This workshop is available to all levels but is perfect for those new to abstract painting.  No previous experience with acrylic paints is necessary.


Full refund – $75 if requested 60 days prior to start of course. 1/2 refund if requested 31 days prior to start of course. No refund if canceled within 30 days of start date of course. To request a refund, please Contact Us>>
