4 DAY WORKSHOP – ACRYLIC
Free your abstraction in an unconventional space! This workshop offers a premiere opportunity to create an abstract series using our 1925 Fieldhouse (a vintage gym) as your studio! This amazing, inspiring space is perfect for creating work in as large a format as you want, with hands-on intensive assistance. Participants create their own abstract series by learning how to paint three or more paintings a day. We will use acrylic paint and “loosening up” exercises to liberate intuitive creativity. Discussion of color theory, composition and suggestions for creating your own “painting process” will also be provided. There will be daily meditation and demonstrations in the workshops.
