OPENING THE REALM OF ABSTRACTION

Marianne Mitchell

$475.00
This course is for realist painters wanting to incorporate more abstract “looser” expression in their work and for abstract painters seeking guidance in developing their expression. The focus will be on understanding the four phases involved in creating an abstract painting that engages emotionally and intellectually through the artist’s handling of their chosen medium. Discussions, demonstrations and exercises will emphasize the relationship between emotional expression, compositional skill and technical facility while each student is supported on their artistic journey throughout the workshop. Marianne is proficient in oils, chalk and oil pastel, acrylic, watercolor, and welcomes all mediums in the workshop. Marianne’s demos include sharing her methods developed to achieve luminous layers of colors in oil pastel and oil paint. Supply lists for using these mediums and technique available upon request.
