Each student will utilize their training from basic instruction to continue developing their personal expression and further explore the process of abstract art. It will include:

  • working intuitively

  • finding their natural “mark”

  • using photos, blind contour drawing and spontaneous line drawings as inspiration

  • working in a series

  • working from observations

  • investigating composition using the formal elements and principles of design

The class will include practical demonstrations.
