dscn1792With abstract painting, students move away from formal representation. In this exciting workshop, students look at abstract art from its beginnings in the 20th century. They experiment with colour and different applications of paint on art paper. Wear art-proof clothing!



 Class Preparation

Please cover desks and tables with paper before the instructor arrives. Kraft paper is best for clay and messy workshops. A large central table is needed for some workshops such as Decorative Eggs, Inuit Inspired Printmaking and Linoleum Printing. Access to water is essential for clean up whether it’s a sink in the classroom, bathrooms, or a large bucket filled with water. Remember to wear nametags and dress for art!

Note: instructor must stay in one room for the entire day when 3 programs are booked.

Inspirational artist-led demonstrations provide technical instruction and guidance. An art-history perspective enriches programs where applicable. The highest priority is to stimulate each student’s imagination and creativity.
