Workshop Description

Abstraction offers a limitless world of possibilities for creatives, but it can be hard to know how and where to begin and to decide what kind of abstract art you want to create. This one-day workshop will jump start your journey into making abstract art that resonates with you, through activities that encourage you to draw on your intuition, innate creativity and personal preferences. We'll begin our day with expressive marking making on a large scale, progressing to a collage with selected favourite treasures from your larger piece. Experiment with a variety of drawing media to extend marks, lines and shapes. Add colour and texture with paint as you're guided through the development of an effective composition, with a focus on shapes, lines and colours that you love. The workshop will encourage you to focus on play and experimentation as a starting point for abstract painting. You'll take home a basic understanding of how to develop your work from initial sketches into an effective composition, how to use colour to best effect and how mark making can enliven your work. SUITABLE FOR: 'A Brush with Abstract' is a great taster workshop day for beginners. No previous art skills or experience are required. All ages and abilities are catered for. WHAT'S INCLUDED: All brushes, tools, paints and papers. Morning tea (please let me know if you have any allergies). Tea and coffee available all day. WHAT TO BRING: An apron or paint clothes.
