Paint, Collage and Abstraction
Location: Arthouse South Brent

Time: 10am - 4pm

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
In this workshop we will explore the stages of abstraction via guided drawing, collage and painting exercises. We will look at and discuss relevant paintings and produce a series of colourful abstracted collages and painted studies. These may lead to a finished painting which may be developed further during weekly classes or at home.
During the day we will explore the language of painting in a non-representational way in order to release us from “having to get it right”. So this is a good workshop for exploring the language of painting and enjoying the materials, even if you are a representational painter.
Examples of this language include: Colour, texture, marks, form, line, repetition, scale, rhythm, surface, tone.
Guided charcoal or ink drawings from vessels
Hand paint swatches for collage
Look at and discuss relevant artists
Make guided collage studies
Add to them with paint and line
Based on the morning’s studies you will be shown how to develop these into a larger painting.
