Abstract Floral Painting
May 23, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 6:00pm on Wednesday, repeating until May 30, 2018
INSTRUCTOR: April South-Olsen
DATES: May 23, 30
Celebrate the blossoming around you with painting your own floral abstract painting! Don’t let abstract painting scare you anymore. Experience a step-by-step approach to painting spring florals, and learn to create a feeling rather than an image. We will explore color to find harmony in your palette and understand why certain colors look good next to each other and what attracts us to them. Our hands are individual to us, I will help you look into how your body moves to make marks that give your painting its unique magic.
The first class will discuss color and how to break up the canvas. The students will lay down their first couple of layers. Instructor will present a slide show with different color combinations and possibly a quick exercise to warm up. In the second class students will finish the last 2 layers and details. Instructor will talk about shape and mark making to simplify the flower shapes. At the end the class will discuss the finished works.
