Tuesdays, 2pm - 5pm | 5 weeks
Starts Tuesday 7 June 2022
This class will be taking place in person at The RWA Drawing School Studio at the Royal West of England Academy. If government restrictions prevent this, due to Covid, this course will take place on Zoom.
Abstract or non-figurative art is the main form of modern art. This class will begin with drawing and painting subjects based from life, eventually moving away from concepts of perspective, gravity, naturalistic shapes and colours towards the abstract. Explore imagination and creativity and discover your personal language of abstraction. You will work on several compositions from more figurative to fully abstract using paper collage, pastels and acrylic paint. Suitable for all abilities.
Basic materials are provided, although we recommend bringing your own brushes if you have them. You will need to wear clothes or an overall suitable for a studio environment, and will need to consider bringing plastic bags or similar to take wet work home with you.
Please note, participants will need to wear face coverings for the duration of the sessions. The RWA is able to provide one free visor per person for those who prefer them.
This class will be taking place at the RWA Drawing School Studio, Royal West of England Academy, BS8 1PX
