Embracing Abstraction with Brazen Edwards



Sat, Feb 17th, 2018 to Sun, Feb 18th, 2018


10:00 am


This exciting 2-day workshop is designed for anyone wishing to explore painting in abstraction using techniques of laying in texture.

Participants will be combining art materials and household objects to experiment so you get over the fear of working with acrylics and abstract compositions. You will be encouraged to approach painting loosely so you’re fully able to explore and have fun.

A demonstration will be given each day and we’ll cover the basics of glazing, splattering, washes, blending and working with texture mediums and pastes. Students will prep surfaces and develop compositions that will be used for day two. ​The next day will be creating more layers and unifying your surfaces with colour to develop subtle and sculpted textures by dry brushing, using acrylic glazes and stencil transfers to finish your paintings.

This class is suitable for all levels however some experience with acrylics would be an advantage. This will be a risk taking workshop where artists will be pushed to paint on the edge and be inspired to trust their instincts.
