Students approach abstract art through still life, figure, and landscape painting. Explore abstract form and image as the class progresses. Working with form, composition, line, and color, students search for their own interpretive style. The teacher provides individualized instruction for each student.
This class is taught on Zoom. Supply lists are listed below.
