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.
