Want to create abstract Art, but don’t know where to start? This Discover Abstract Painting workshop will show you how. It will guide you through different abstracted techniques that artists use and encourage you to try three or more compositional formats. Elaine will take you on a journey of exploring a variety of mark-making techniques and finding what works for you as an artist. You will explore how to draw and paint intuitively, practice converting sketches into abstract images and working with a blank canvas. In the process, you will learn how to add texture, line, and form; use unconventional tools and materials to add interest to your art. Suitable for all levels.
