Description: Let go of your plan and preconceived ideas and spend the day going abstract. In this full day workshop, learn the principles behind creating abstract art. We will discuss and review concepts such as Focus, Unity, Contrast, Repetition, Balance, Layering, Movement and Quadrant Composition, among others. We will start by creating collage bits and pieces in a freeform, random fashion to be used in our workshop project. Working on a stretched canvas, we will then bring life to the principles using collage, paint, ink, and an array of mark makers. You will make at least artwork and have a collection of creative techniques to apply to all your art in the future.
