We will explore materials that are sourced from unusual places such as the home improvement store, the fabric store, the kitchen and the office supply store. I will share how to use acrylic gels, pastes and mediums to expand your texture vocabulary while saving tons of money on paints. Color is my thing and I will give you the three best tips for creating vibrant colors. Learn how to create mood using position and values and find the narrative within the abstract forms. We begin with playful exercises that will free your creative soul to explore new directions into abstract reasoning.
