Exploring Abstraction Workshop for Teens with Souby Boski
Date: Saturday, March 26th
Time: 1-4 PM
Location: Five Points Arts Center Painting Lab
Class Cap: 12
This workshop is intended for anyone who wants to explore non-representational painting by experimenting and applying free expression of one’s personal perception. Students of all levels develop a working knowledge of abstract painting, challenging them to see and interpret in new ways. Using acrylic paint, graphite, charcoal, oil pastels and other tools students will explore color, line, movement, mark making, form, proportion, shapes and texture. No prior experience necessary, appropriate to beginners to advanced painters. All materials included – just bring a sketchbook!
