The Art of Abstraction; Four-Day Painting Workshop with Leya Evelyn
September 15-18, 2016, Baddeck, Cape Breton Island.
This four-day workshop will enable you to experience a new adventure in line, colour and texture. Working in water-based paints, a series of exercises will help loosen your brush work and pull you out of the realm of the representational, leading you to create solid painting ideas in the realm of abstraction.
This workshop includes exercises, discussion, work time and critiques of work in class as well as time to work on your own. We will explore where your art is now and where it is going.
All levels of experience are welcome.
The cost is $290 and you will need to bring your own materials. A non refundable deposit is requested by July 1st.
Contact Linda Wright for further information. You can view Leya’s amazing work on her website: http://leyaevelyn.com/
