7 Design Compositions that Work -Acrylic Workshop
Fridays 9:30 - 12:00 | April 6, 13, 20, 27
All levels of experience welcome
It is sometimes a difficult stretch for artists to paint abstract work.
What do I paint? It looks like a mess! How do I know its done?
In this acrylic painting workshop we will focus on the underlying structure that can act as the glue or scaffolding to hold everything together in abstract or non-objective painting. Join artist/ instructor Lael Har and explore 7 compositions that bring order to the elements of art through steps to good design.
