Could we possibly have more fun than this?! Non-objective and abstract, intuitive painting.  We will begin with a demo of how to prepare surfaces (i.e. gesso application), set up an acrylic palette and look at types of substrates (paper, canvas, board, even old paintings!)  Through progressive assignments, experience many ways of putting marks and paint onto surfaces with exercises to help the artist loosen up and play.
The object is:
1) discover styles, marks, colors that YOU love and
2) make note of those discoveries as you evolve your own style.
