Figuration to Abstraction Abstract painting2

Abstract & Open Painting (Week Four) ADULTS

Abstract & Open Painting (Week Four) ADULTS

What is Abstract and Open Painting? In this workshop you learn the basis of abstract painting; why and how has it developed, and how you can create your own abstract painting language.

With tutor Anniek Verholt you will explore abstract painting through colour, space, form and imagery from varied sources, with a variety of media. Suitable for all levels with the opportunity to develop personal projects.

Workshops explained: The Sequential Development of Creativity
Art development applies the same school philosophy of committing to developing the individual’s abilities through specialist tutoring and applying a process of learning using the building blocks of art making. Adult students bring with them a developed personality, personal knowledge, experience and defined opinions that demands individual attention. The sequential development of creativity empowers the student to progress at their own pace through the art leaning journey and progress is often mapped through a sketch book-based annotation approach.
