Make It Abstract with Meg Kaczyk
Wednesday, September 5, 2018
You will begin by drawing small, from a photo or realistic image. Then you'll put away the original source and get larger and looser, using water-based paint and oil pastels. You will identify the main composition, working with big shapes, and a few details. You will play with color, and loosen your grip on realism. You will look at abstract and expressionist art: how it expresses reality, how we respond to it, and whether, having explored how to abstract your own art, your response to abstraction has changed. All levels welcome.
