Instructor:  Colleen Gianatiempo

Do you want to get in touch with your abstract side but not sure how?  This class will introduce a multitude of different exercises to get you thinking about form, space, shape, emotion and composition.  Allow yourself to let go of control and surrender to the painting.  Abstract art enables the artist to perceive beyond the tangible, to extract the infinite out of the finite.  Beginners a bonus! In-person participants: all materials provided. Virtual students: see supply list for the materials you’ll need for the workshop.
