Secrets of Abstraction Workshop

April 30, 2021 - June 4, 2021


5 Fridays: April 30 -June 4 (No Class May 28)
1-2:30 pm MST

For the intermediate to advanced painter

Have you come to a place in your process where you would like to take your abstract language a bit deeper than the surface techniques you have learned? Have you noticed your painting may be looking a lot like others out there working in an abstract language?

Do you ever stop yourself when your paintings are “good enough”? They’re good; they have all the right elements to make a working
composition, but you know you could go further and don’t.

Often the difference between good & great is just 5 more brushstrokes. How do you move from a good painting to a great painting? Boldness and Risk!

In this workshop, we’ll work together to part the veils & learn to trust our personal flow. I will guide us in moving toward that diving edge. Through Prompts & demonstrations, I will show you how to let your authentic voice shine in your paintings.


Weekly Demos including:
~ Gestural mark-making & brushstrokes with Conte, pastels, oil pastels
~ Acrylic painting
