A Look at Abstract Painting
Do you ever look at abstract art and feel you are missing something, as if you don’t quite get it? Or are you intrigued by the non-objective, but would like to know more about what makes it work? Maybe you’re a painter and would like to explore abstract imagery. Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning presents ‘Looking at Abstract Painting’ with Jane Davies on Tuesday, February 11, from 6 to 9 p.m., at the Dorset Church. This workshop is an introduction to looking at and making abstract art from a purely visual standpoint. First we will view slides of abstract contemporary paintings from many different artists and styles; next we’ll examine basic compositional elements, such as line, shape and color. All materials for the hands-on part of this workshop will be provided. Class is limited to 12 participants. Jane Davies is a full-time artist working in collage and painting.
