The Abstract Painting course introduces the student to the painting techniques and history of Abstract Art. The modules covers canvas preparation, basic color theory, visual theory, and approaches to painting abstract art. We will look at the style of several different abstract artists and students will begin to develop their own painting style in a studio setting. Personal expression is an important aspect to this course in addition to the emphasis on learning technique and skill. With demonstrations, and lectures, techniques for achieving a variety of effects will be presented. Color, composition and line will also be discussed throughout with a two-part approach of introducing students to various methods through demonstrations and studio time during the class.
