Jump into Abstract Painting (evening)

Jump into Abstract Painting


Explore abstract painting in a creative and inspiring studio where you will learn intuitive & expressive mark making.
In this 2.5hour beginners, introductory class, we will explore mark making with various tools and mediums on paper.

Your personal interpretation of words, actions and feelings will become evident. There is no "need to be" perfect or precise, you will only be required to delve into your subconscious and make your marks from deep inside you. You will be the master of your own creation.

There will be an initial demonstration showing you how the painting process begins.

Then, using word prompts to trigger feelings we will fill our paper charcoal, pencil, and ink. Break free by using our non-dominant hand to make marks freely across a partitioned piece of paper. We will continue with collage and colour to fill your page with your own personal marks. You will be guided every step of the way with ideas, but you will be encouraged to discover your own expression in this piece.

This class is for those wishing to get an idea of what is possible with abstract painting.

For those wishing to learn and develop further skills in abstract painting, there will be a "follow-on" 4-week course where you will learn how to use composition and design to make better abstract paintings. There will also be workshops covering specific topics, such as, abstract landscapes, animals, portraiture....

The course includes materials and notes to take home with you.

These “in person” classes, workshops and monthly lessons is a place where you can learn to create art in a friendly, creative environment so you finally feel fulfilled.

This workshop is designed for beginners, or for those wishing to explore an intuitive/ expressive painting. Come and have some fun exploring a really different way of creating art.

(Intuitive means instinctive and when used in painting, we connect with our emotions or feelings when painting, without being conscious of doing so.)

We will supply the materials used in the class and you will take your masterpiece home with you (along with notes)
