The focus of this workshop takes us beyond technique to examine effective use of color and composition in abstract painting. Participants work toward creating a personal palette which reflects their unique sensibility. By creating color charts of their mixing experiments, each person will have a record to take home. Classic color schemes and traditional compositions are explored in a set of guided exercises.
Studio time will provide students with the opportunity to explore working in a series. This is an intermediate level class.
Some experience with abstract painting is recommended.
