Beautiful organic marks and shapes are an integral part of abstract painting. In this class we’ll work with various types of acrylic paints to explore various ways to get those shapes and marks. We’ll work with building skins, both transparent and colorful skins, attaching them to our canvasses. We’ll use some traditional and non-traditional tools to make beautiful marks within our paintings and to divide the space in our paintings. We’ll have both group and individual critiques. There will be lots of experimenting within the sound principles of design and good color combinations.
ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
“Mixed media, acrylic paints, calligraphy, bookbinding, and fiber arts – I have loved them all since I first discovered each medium. I have a degree in graphic design and worked for many years as a publication, marketing and advertising designer as a way to make a living but my passion has always been with color and paint, no matter what the surface. Personal artistic development has been a lifeline as I work my way through the challenges life has brought. My mixed media, book art, calligraphic and acrylic work has been shown in galleries and top juried art fairs nationwide. I believe that asking “what if?” and keeping a spirit of adventure and discovery is important as I follow my creative path and attempt to make something original. I love experimenting with texture, layers, marks, paint and dyes.
“I have been a teaching artist for 30 years and I love to teach! Seeing the joy in a student’s face when they create something that pleases them brings me joy. I am grateful for the opportunities I have been given to inspire others to be creative. I am proud to be a Certified Teaching Artist for Golden Paints.”
