Educational Opportunities March 2, 2023 Abstract Art on Paper Course In this Abstract Art on Paper course, we will explore abstract drawing with colour that may include painting and collage. Date: Saturdays, March 11 and 18, 2023 Time: 1 – 4pm Cost: $235.40 tax included Location: 36 4th St. NE During experimenting with mark-making, value, colour and composition, we will talk about why we are attracted to abstraction in art and how it reveals our individuality. Although we will work in pure abstraction, all of these ideas and skills apply to representational art in all mediums. This course is appropriate for both the beginner and the experienced artist. Students will be able to walk away from this exploration with a deeper knowledge of their personal creative process and responses to visual art. I will introduce many techniques and tools for abstract drawing and mixed media. Throughout the sessions, we will discuss how value and colour create powerful compositions in the artwork. You will also take home a number of artworks on paper. These may be finished works or starting points for new work in your art practice. There is a place for everyone regardless of experience because we never stop learning, growing and changing. For more information and to register visit vancouverislandsculptingstudio.com.
