3 HOURS ONLINE WITH ZOOM APP: WEDNESDAY Workshop
To attend this workshop, please download the free Zoom app at: zoom.us
Whether you are a novice or experienced artist, this session promises to be engaging, supportive and fun.
Each landscape has an abstract, graphic presence at its core. This course will teach artists to go beyond the obvious and truly explore movement, texture, colour and bring out abstracted shapes, whether beginners wishing to start developing a style of their own, or established artists looking to refine theirs in the medium of their choice. Instruction will be given to artists working in the means of expression they choose. Demonstrations will be done in acrylic.
Basic drawing techniques, perspective, composition, colour, texture, use of material will be explored.
Individual feedback and guidance will be given to artists working in the varying degrees of abstraction they choose.
