Explore abstract painting and collage where each class will begin with drawing and painting warm ups, demonstrations and discussions. Individual creativity and finding your own voice is a focus. Acrylic painting and drawing techniques, as well as opportunities for various mixed media such as collage, gouache and watercolor and how to use them in your paintings will be a part of this class. By the end of the course students will develop a body of paintings, collages, drawings and mixed media works on paper. This course is open to all levels but some experience is helpful.
