Many realistic artists are interested in abstraction but often do not know how to get there from where their style is currently. In this course you will find out! Each week participants will do one painting in an oversized format with a wide brush. Over the six weeks you will learn how to simplify and reduce your painting subjects to its essential forms. Special emphasis will be on color and shape. Artists of all levels welcome. This course is based on The Big Brush Workshop™, but unlike the workshop, participants have a long period in which to explore, experiment and incorporate the principals of The Big Brush Workshop™. Participants will work with the materials of their choice and are asked to bring three samples of their current work to the first class.
