Painting and Abstraction

Visual Arts

Discover the art of modern life: learn a new way of thinking and seeing, and create dynamic Abstract paintings. Express your inner self in your work with this more personal and expressive mode of painting. This introductory class is designed to explore the basics of style and structure, and the simple concepts behind the actions, working in acrylics and mixed media. This course is for those who wish to work in oils or acrylics. Both mediums and materials will be explained and the painting concepts and processes are the same. Both mediums are used with “green” techniques, including no solvents.
