Abstraction from nature workshop with Larry Moore $475
“No great artist ever sees things as they really are. If they did, they would cease to be an artist.” Oscar Wilde
In this 3-day class we will cover the fundamentals of abstract art. It’s not specifically a non-objective (pure abstract) class, you get to decide the level of abstraction you wish to explore. It is more a learn-how-to-think kind of a class where you will receive a process that you can do on your own at home. It’s a crash course on finding authenticity in your work. We start with a discussion about what abstract is, how it operates and how you can access your individual aesthetic. It is not a how to paint something to look like something class.
We start with small studies and work up to larger ideas. As it is a 3 day class we won’t be going large, just 20x20 or so. The class is as affective for beginning and intermediate artists as it is for advanced. All will be challenged. I am versatile in all mediums having worked extensively in pastel, acrylic, oil, gouache and mixed-media. Though I do recommend acrylic or gouache (opaque watercolor) for versatility and quick drying time.
There will be one lecture and at 2-3 demos with lots of hands on assistance.
