NEW! Urban Mixmedia Textured Abstract

Instructor: Erin Ashley

BEGINNERS

Explore how trying new things can take your abstract art in another direction. Easy going and fun – no fuss…
let’s just create! Learn to paint without using paintbrushes at all. Create unique sculptural textures on your
canvas with different mediums. Distress your art into a cool urban modern piece and learn techniques to
master the art of layering. This class will train you to push yourself to do things you wouldn’t normally do
and unleash your creativity with new modern approaches. Take an old painting you have worked on that you
don’t like and watch it transform to a painting that you will love! We will work on wood and larger canvas
incorporating magazine tear outs and newspapers into your piece. Students will gain confidence approaching a
blank canvas and learn to see abstract painting inspiration in simple things that we may overlook that will drive
you to create magnificent pieces of art.
