There are two definitions of abstract art: 1) non-representational, and 2) representational but with details removed. I love both types of abstract work.

All Roads, by Dina Wakley

In this class, we’ll make exploratory abstractions in our art journals. I will guide you through some of my favorite processes for loosening up, working organically, creating abstractions (non-representational as well as faces, figures, and flowers), and building on concepts and ideas.

On day 3, we’ll take our favorite elements from those pages and transfer them to our panels, to create a triptych that is full of expression and color.

Dina will provide: acrylic paint and mediums, stencils, marking tools, Stabilo pencils.

Please bring:

  • your favorite brushes, including some large ones
  • brush-cleaning cup/basin
  • scissors
  • two art journals
  • baby wipes/paper towels/art rag
  • 3 12×12 (or any size you want to work on) wood panels or canvases
  • a pad of watercolor paper (I will work on 9×12, bring any size you wish)
