What you'll learn in this abstract painting class:

In these five-class workshops (a total of 15 hours), students will create a series of eight paintings/drawings from classwork and homework assignments. Novice and experienced painters are welcome. This class will help students delve into personal symbolism to find an authentic voice in their work. 

For inspiration we will look at a mixture of art history and contemporary art. Class exercises will address line, shape, format, texture, composition, and color theory. Students are expected to complete all homework assignments and attend one exhibition.
