Painting Without Borders shows you how to connect with your heart instead of your head. We will do some exercises in charcoal to gain confidence in line and gesture, then introduce colour with chalk pastels and acrylics; a step-by-step approach and a fun way to free-up your painting style. Suitable for beginner artists in Acrylics, and also those wishing to have more practice.

SEMI-ABSTRACT PAINTING
Monday, March 20 – Monday, April 18, 2017
9:30am – Noon
This workshop will introduce you to semi-abstract painting. Starting with chalk pastels we will use the basic techniques of line and gesture to push the boundaries of realism. Learn to move beyond the restrictions of objects with borders and develop the creative process through colour, light and texture. This class is suitable for artists with a knowledge of acrylics, or those who have completed ‘Painting without Borders’.
