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.
