Join me for an exploration in abstract painting. Abstract painting might seem random, but it is based in composition and color theory. The skills you learn will be useful whether you later use them for backgrounds or as stand-alone abstract pieces. We will work on watercolor paper to create interesting foundations and looks with our acrylic paints and other mixed media supplies. The end result will be gorgeous multi-layered paintings. Bring your journal, too, for practicing and taking notes. We will have lots of messy, artistic fun!
- Basic tool kit: Ranger craft sheet, scissors, paint brushes, mini blending tool and foams, water sprayer, Archival black ink pad and acrylic block, paint pens like Posca, water container to clean your brushes, baby wipes, paper towels, paper plate or palette paper to use as a palette (or you can just use your craft sheet). Optional but really nice to have: Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher and staples. You may also want a small notebook and a pen for taking notes.
- Your art journal.
