Abstract Expressionism

The Nature in Things

Nature is a powerful teacher

Using Abstract expressionist techniques the focus of this class is to create the essence of nature. Rather than reproducing what we "see" in nature, we wll extract the feeling evoked by the natural world. Abstract Expressionism is a post WWII painting period breaking away from conventional techniques focusing on the inner psyche and tapping into universal sources.

Develop your Unique form of expression in a non-threatening atmosphere of mutual respect and learning.

Learn to harness your energy as a visual map.

Have fun!
