Abstracting the Landscape Live With Susan Woolgar! 

September 10,11,12th 2021

Join us via Zoom for this workshop in acrylics as we move away from realism, loosen up and learn to abstract the landscape.

Only 16 seats!

Register early to reserve your seat before we open it to the general public on August 1st. 

Susan will guide us through several exercises to accomplish this, including colour exercises to develop different palettes, value exercises to enhance design, the mechanics of building a painting and using line as an expressive tool. Susan will also include mark-making exercises and how to simplify our reference photos. We will then apply the above lessons to a larger canvas, introducing some texturing to the surface and experimenting with layers. We will have a lot of individual time with Susan, and a lot of time to paint. Includes demos and critiques in an atmosphere of encouragement and fun.
