My Blank Canvas - Abstract Art Workshop - Adults Only

My Blank Canvas - Abstract Art Workshop - Adults Only

EVENT DETAILS

My Blank Canvas, Painting Abstract Stories Participants will respond abstractly on canvas, quickly and spontaneously to a series of suggestions and various prompts (abstract stories) imagining in layered colors different memories, situations, experiences, goals and dreams. Everyone starts with a blank canvas, no experience is required. You do not need to know how to draw or paint. Fine art materials and unconventional tools are all included to encourage abstract thinking, processes and full spectrum color artwork. You will take home three small artworks you create in this abstract expression workshop. Dress for wet paint and bring a drop cloth for your car.
ART GOALS:
1. Express yourself with color and paint, not copying images or photographs
2. Allow yourself to relax, let go of trying to perfectly create something - enjoy imperfect marks
3. Express yourself without words or technology - deep breathing and visualization
4. Express your individuality without copying others or comparing your own expression
5. Purely visual - allow yourself the freedom to express thoughts and emotions abstractly without discussion or opinion. Only you truly know the colors and meanings of your abstract painting stories!
6. Mix paints to create new colors that are unique and individual to your own expression. Have fun, don’t over think it, and let your colors flow, go with the flow!
