Rappahannock Art League Sept 2017
Title: Moving and Shaking in Abstraction With Water-media and Collage Workshop
Instructor: Eileen Olson-Abstract Expressionist painter
Dates: Monday, Sept 18 and Tuesday, Sept 19, 2017
Workshop Time: 10-4 PM
Workshop Description: Eileen will show you how to let loose and paint like you mean it! In this expressive abstract workshop you will use instinct, passion and intuition as your guide. Free your self by working on several paintings at a time to keep yourself moving. Learn to use water-media boldly with good composition, strong values and vivid color. Paint over, layer and scrape, to create visual texture, depth, energy and emotion. Integrate collage for visual impact. Learn how to resolve a painting through self -critique.
We will paint on 10”x10” sheets of paper pre-coated with gesso and graduate to a large canvas or panel on Sunday.
Bring your usual painting gear, an open mind, and lots of enthusiasm. There will be plenty of emphasis on creative thinking.
Eileen will provide daily handouts and demos.
There is no pre-requisite for this workshop.
Students bring their own supplies.
