Abstract Art Diary: 7-8 May 2016

Discover what the students got up to during this course.  The exercises, the experimentation, the finished drawings.

This course enabled students to go on a journey to create wonderful abstract acrylic and mix-media pictures by the end of the weekend.  Not only did they get a chance to explore materials but where taken step by step through all the stages so they clearly understood all the fundamental principles and background procedures to creating quality unique abstract art on their own.

Even though the course is about abstract art there is a lot students can learn to use in representational or figurative art as well, such as composition, balance, interpreting original source material and developing a better approach to mark making.
