Course Description



Join me for another live Zoom art workshop. This session is all about abstract techniques on paper.

In this two part online workshop you will create multiple abstract works on paper. I will share my techniques and methods of creating layers and texture within my work, composition, how to get unstuck and how to finish your work and how to take smaller works to inspire larger works. We will use some of my tried and true warm up exercises that will inspire our work during the workshop. We will create a stitched sketchbook (that you will make and fill with your marks) as a source of inspiration. We will incorporate calcium carbonate as a base layer on a few pieces.
