Wednesday 31st July to Saturday 3rd August

Using a framework of ideas such as simplification, fragmentation, colour, scale and markmaking, 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 and resists. This workshop is about exploring different routes to abstraction and seeing where they take you, not necessarily producing a finished piece of work. Lots of demos, exercises and ideas to get you started. No experience needed - a fun and informal workshop.
There will be a £ 10 materials cost to students.
