Tired of drawing the same old apples and oranges?  How about creating a shape or presenting a color relationship that has never been seen before? This 8-week class will examine the infinite possibilities of abstraction using various dry drawing materials and water based paint and/or through the painting mediums of oil or acrylics.  Each student will have the option to decide what materials to use and when. The exception being the homework assignments which will always be done on paper. Class can be as structured or as open as desired to enable the creative voice to have its say.  Students who prefer more structure will work on in-class assignments while others may choose to treat the class as an open studio, pursuing individual projects. Contemporary artists as well as artist from history will be discussed to remind us of what is happening and what has happened, renewing our connection to world culture. Class critiques will provide a window into ideas, process and intent. This class will be both challenging and fun as you discover the infinite freedom of abstraction! 

Please sign up early; class size is limited to 12 students.
