Abstract Expressionist Painting: The Language of Form, Voice of Materials
Ages: 18 - No Limit
Ability: Intermediate Advanced Professional
This course aims to reinvigorate and enrich ones' painting process through incorporation of new methodologies that focus on creative freedom, intuitive improvisation and discovery.
Abstract Expressionism necessitates two steppingstones of creativity: an alternation between purposefulness and freedom. In addition to the rigor of thoughtful, critical deliberation, one has to have the faith and willingness to let go and let things happen, to allow intuition to lead and let one's hands do the thinking. Our quest is for novel, revelatory paintings.
This course will include: demonstrations using mixed media, collage, printing, stenciling and paint manipulation, combined with individual & group critiques and special presentations.
