This workshop is for the painter ready to push his or her work beyond the point of recognizable subject matter into the realm of  pure  abstraction.  Students will start  with traditional representational approaches and move quickly through progressively more abstract techniques, eventually arriving at purely non-objective  paintings.  Special attention will be paid to the elements of composition as they apply to abstract painting. Through a combination of slideshows, discussions, assignments and critiques, this workshop will expose students to new artistic possibilities for self-expression. Students should bring their own reference photos and also plan to take photos during the workshop. Printed photos and/or digital images on laptop/iPad may be used for reference. Photo editing software is also helpful but not required. Students will have the option to paint from a still life set up.


Note: Participation in “Image to Abstract 1” is not required.
