Painting is about color and light.  It is about the physicality of a gesture. Or, is it about the absence of these things?  Creating an abstract painting requires a series of decisions using knowledge of the elements and principles of art, and an arsenal of practice and instinct.  Be guided to develop your own practice, a support in trusting instinct, and lessons in composition.   Explore many contexts for abstraction, showing artists that span time and style and demonstrations of techniques that are both traditional and alternative.  Use life references with some work, and embrace pure process in others.  This class is taught using acrylics, but is open to oil painters if they use non-toxic mediums and cleaners.
