The Art of Abstraction
Painting Workshops with Leya Evelyn

Understanding the Importance of Composition

Six unique workshops in abstract painting at St. Luke’s United Church in Upper Tantallon, NS.

Composition is the coordinating factor for your abstract painting: how you use the space and what you want to communicate. We will look at balance, tension, focus, image, colour and ground.

All levels of experience welcome

Dates: Every other Wednesday, beginning April 5, for 6 weeks

Place: St Luke’s United Church,

#5374 Route 3,

across from the Bike & Bean,

Upper Tantallon, NS.


Time: 11am to 4:00 pm.

Cost: $360 for all six workshops or a drop-in fee of $65 for the day.

The workshops include discussion, work time and critiques of work in class as well as on your own time. We explore where your art is now and where it could be.

The format will be with exercises for the first hour or two and then you can work on your own pieces or continue with what you started in the morning. The exercises are intended to open up different possibilities within the realm of abstraction. These workshops will challenge, satisfy, frustrate and give you a foundation for creating solid painting ideas.
