This is a great place to start if you would like to explore abstraction. Students will be shown how to borrow from their surroundings to find inspirations. You will be guided through several exercises that promote looking and painting with different perspectives and new techniques.
Throughout the workshop, Yuen will use visual presentations and live demonstrations to share a variety of painting techniques achieved with Golden Artists Acrylics. Yuen will provide you with some supplies (fluids, pastes, etc) to apply these techniques immediately to your work. Besides painting, you will also experiment with creating landscape monotypes with acrylics. In addition, you will learn how to incorporate image transfers with your paintings to enhance depth and visual intrigue.
The possibilities are endless. Come with an open mind and enjoy painting abstract landscapes with acrylics. There is plenty of one-on-one guidance, so students of all levels are welcomed.
