Abstract Art Exploration

Abstract Art Class

Experiment with colors and supplies including watercolors, acrylic paint, acrylic inks, colored pencil, gel pens and oil pastels in this fun, low-key, explorative class. You will create monochromatic paintings by building up layers of color and adding tiny tweaks to create your own, unique works of art, ready to pop in a frame. We will be using 140 lb. Cold Press Watercolor Paper for our paintings and we will complete two 5.5”x8.5” paintings during class. No previous painting experience required.
