Intro to Abstract Painting & Modern Art



This class is designed for true Abstract Painting beginners who are eager to dive into the wonderful and exciting world of abstraction, all while experiencing a “crash course” in the history of modern art.
During this exploration of history and materials, students will gain a foundational understanding of the context and influences behind abstract painting.

Through color, shape, texture, and composition, students will create expressive abstract works of art. This class is all about exploration and self-expression. Unleash your creativity and develop your own artistic voice!

*Foundational knowledge (basic painting techniques, principles and elements of design, mixing paint, etc.) is desired but not required.
