This class is for painters who would like to explore the possibilities of opening up their work to abstraction, whether by maintaining a sense of realism or moving into non-objectivity. Focus will be in finding an authentic way to express ideas as well as challenging the way of viewing and making art. Reference materials like sketches, photographs or imagination will serve as a jumping off point. The process of painting itself as subject will be explored. Examples of work by noteworthy abstract painters will be presented to inspire and guide students. Group discussion and individual critique will also be a component of the workshop. Please bring a smart phone as well as a project/acrylic-based medium to the first class.
