Making Abstract Art
Art is a 20th-century movement characterized by the reduction of natural appearances into simplified forms; for example, constructing art on the basis of geometric shapes or intuitive gestures. Also called Nonobjective Art, doesn’t depend on the appearance of the visual world as a starting point; the assumption is that art doesn’t have to be about anything other than formal elements: shape, color and expressed emotions.
This workshop is for artists who are motivated to learn more about creating expressive, simple yet bold abstract art. We will start with the basics, then some color exercises and talk about the composition, the weight of color and experimentation. Additionally, we will discuss, geometry, repetition and “What holds everything together”?
The second day is about constraint in art. We will look at Minimalism and the many variables we deal with, in creating a painting. How to simplify things? How do we take a concept and boil it down to its essence?
Lots of time for action-filled painting and personalized attention.
