Great news y’all! Move the Line, my abstract workshop focusing on dynamic movement, transparent layers, and fundamentals is coming to Mobile, Al. August 1st and 2nd at the Alabama Contemporary Arts Center!
This workshop will be a 2 day version of my more in depth 4 day workshop, and will give students an exciting experience to dive into loose, fluid, and dynamic acrylic abstract paintings. Because of the nature of this workshop, it will be perfect for the beginner to the advanced student, as long as you are willing to step outside your comfort zone and play while you paint.
Some of the concepts we will cover are:
How to prep your substrate to add depth and texture before you paint
Mark making and line work using graphite, charcoal, and acrylic sticks
Hand painting your own paper for collage elements
Fundamentals such as composition, contrast and value, and mixing colors
How to incorporate mixed media such as watercolors, fluid acrylics, and heavy body acrylics into your paintings
What the difference between painting on paper to canvas is and how to do both creatively
Two day workshop registration is $275
