VIRTUAL - Intro to Nonrepresentational Painting/Collage in Acrylic
This class will first explore and apply some important design rules. Secondly we will put those aside (mostly) and have a blast! Plan for a very busy afternoon. If you’ve always wanted to play with your paints and see what comes out the other end of your brush, join us. It is an exciting way to paint.
- Creating Strong Design
- Making elements
- Interesting tools, marks
- Begin to let go and have fun!
Note: Please note that registration will close August 8 at noon central time. Please register early.
