Wednesday 1st August to Saturday 4th August

This workshop is about exploring different routes to abstraction and seeing where they take you, not necessarily producing a finished piece of work. Using a framework of ideas such as simplification, fragmentation, colour, scale & mark making, we will work through a process of taking a realistic starting point and creating an abstracted interpretation of it. We will look at still life and landscape using different approaches for each. We will work in water based media - primarily acrylics - with the addition of collage, pastels, charcoal, inks & resists. Lots of demos, exercises and ideas to get you started. No experience needed - just enjoy and gather ideas in a fun and informal workshop.
There will be a 7 materials cost to students.
