Explore opposing elements in abstraction and how formal contradictions contribute to the making of compelling works of art. Through studying the elements of design, looking at art history, contemporary art and speaking about my own work, I will shed a light on these polarities and help you to gain an understanding into how they function. Experiment with light / dark, positive / negative, thin / thick, atmospheric / hard-edge, movement / stasis, neutrality / saturation and matte / gloss. Try your hand at an array of methods including staining, taping, scraping, glazing and gestural brushwork. Leave the class with a deeper appreciation for abstraction and some of the tools to achieve the art you envision.
Cost: $50 (includes all materials - available at this subsidized rate thanks to LONG BEACH LODGE RESORT & TOFINO ARTS COUNCIL)

This is a SCENT FREE EVENT!
I have an intense reaction to synthetic smells and require that my teaching environment be scent-free. This includes things like hair products, deodorant, fabric softeners, hand cream…anything with a strong fragrance. Sometimes we don’t realize how many different scents are on our person (including perfume that transfers onto your coat etc). I appreciate your sensitivity and attention to this
