Fine Art – The Rules of Abstraction

Linda Sabbage

This workshops will use study artists for discussion to explore what abstract art is and how to achieve it. There will be warm up exercises and exploration of approaches before working on a final piece of work. The workshop will include elements of risk taking, truth to materials, colour and composition.

This workshop is suitable for students over 14.

What to bring:

This one will probably get a bit messy, so we recommend old comfortable clothes. Bring any favorite materials you might have, or any old favored paint colours you might have lying around.

We recommend watching the Matthew Collings Rules of abstraction series as a bit of background.
