1A04 NEW Finding Your Way with Abstract Painting (Intermediate/Advanced)

Non-representational or ‘abstract’ painting is much more than random mark-making or mimicking a style. In this intensive 5 day workshop for Intermediate to Advanced artists, we’ll explore different ways of thinking and working abstractly that will challenge and inspire curious painters who are brave enough to abandon the safety of traditional subject matter.

Monday July 16 – Friday July 20 (5 days) 9:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. Course Fee: $279 Limit: 15 students
