This workshop will introduce a multitude of different exercises to get you thinking about the elements of art such as line, shape, form, color, value, texture. You will gain experience through demos, guided exercises, and personal experimentation, gain hands-on experience with new techniques, materials, and tools. Discussions focus on seeing and reacting, composing images, abstracting and simplifying shapes, and using unconventional color and mark making. Allow yourself to let go of control and surrender to the painting. Beginners a bonus!
