'Abstract impressions'
Karen Carter.

2018 Course listing coming soon.

Monday 24th to Thursday 27th July
Using a framework of ideas such as simplification, fragmentation, colour, scale & mark making, we will work through a process of taking a realistic starting point and creating an abstracted interpretation of it.We will look at still life, natural forms and landscape using different approaches for each.We will work in waterbased media - primarily acrylics - with the addition of collage, pastels, charcoal, inks & resists. This workshop is about exploring different routes to abstraction and seeing where they take you, not necessarily producing a finished piece of work. Lots of demos, exercises and ideas to get you started. No experience needed - a fun and informal workshop.
Materials costs to students will be 5.
