In this relaxed, supportive workshop students make small scale acrylic paintings that explore the language of abstract painting through improvisation. The emphasis is on experimentation and workflow with a focus on process over product. Using a variety of tools, such as, knives, brushes, and blotting and scraping materials, students are encouraged to discover visual surprises that can be developed into compelling abstract compositions. Studio work is complemented by slides shows and discussions that examine historical and contemporary abstract painting.
