Nelson - Workshop Materials

This workshop is for the artist interested in exploring various approaches to creating completely abstract, non-representational paintings. Students will apply classical academic compositional strategies such as color theory, value structure, line, shape, proportion, contrast, repetition, harmony, unity, and more. Through a series of short exercises, students will experiment with multiple approaches to abstract painting including direct painting, layering, expressive mark-making, and geometric ordering. Acrylic paint is the preferred medium (due to its fast drying time) but oil, gouache, pastel, or watercolor are also acceptable. It is also acceptable to use an iPad/tablet with drawing software. Suggested equipment: iPad Pro with Procreate app and Apple Pencil stylus. Note: Participation in “Image to Abstract” 1 or 2 is not required.
