In abstract art, we are always finding and creating our own structures. As painters, we develop our forms with line, color, and the absence of both.

Composition is a common denominator of representational and abstract art, and a key element in creating a strong painting. This will be the focus of the workshop – to understand the relationship between these two expressions of art and to become more focused on the compositions in your paintings. For three hours, one day a week, for four consecutive weeks, students will work on a few paintings, and be encouraged to experiment with new techniques and ideas, working from the forms of still life, reproductions, and drawings. Instructor will demonstrate painting process, and analyze student paintings and the work of others in slides and reproductions, including work in the PAAM collection. Familiarity with the use of acrylic or oil paints is the only experience required.
