This weekend workshop focuses specifically on non-representational abstraction. In other words, we leave behind any attempt to draw or paint objects and instead explore mark making, texture, pattern, color and form as the content of our paintings. As a result of this process, participants develop an intuitive approach-a discovery of delight in the materials and a sense of immediacy as one responds to the mark making itself. Taking the lead from mid-century masters and contemporary artists, we practice layering acrylic paint using a variety of tools and techniques to create rich, weathered surfaces and expand our mark-making vocabulary. Working on several paintings simultaneously, we build interest through additive and subtractive processes. Participants create abstract images which reflect their individual voice and style.


Media: Mixed media.

Skill level: All skill levels.

Age Range: Teens and adults.




Cost for the one day workshop is $175 for CAM members and $195 for non-members. Class size: min. 7/max. 16. Registration ends July 10, 2017. For online registration visit or contact the Art Education Dept. at (541) 267-3901.
