Finding Joy In Abstraction


Join me for an exploration in abstract painting. Abstract painting might seem random, but it is based in composition and color theory. The skills you learn will be useful whether you later use them for backgrounds or as stand-alone abstract pieces. We will start creating paintings using standard compositions and move to compositions that are more unexpected. With over two hours of instructional video, this class is a fun springboard into a lifetime of playing with abstract painting.

Please note, we regret that we cannot offer refunds because the classes are a digital product.
