Large and InCharge ABSTRACTS!
LARGE AND INCHARGE IS A NEW SERIES of themed workshops that focusus on creating large scale (or big idea) artworks under the guidance of master mixed media artist, Christina Lovisa (www.christinalovisa.com). This is the PERFECT workshop for anyone who has ever wanted to create large scale art or big idea art projects and and can't quite figure out where to start! If you're anything like me and see things we like either in stores or on Pinterest and think to ourselves, "I could make that", only to go home and never make that thing because you didnt know how - then this series is for you!
ABSTRACT- The first physical, in-class sessions will begin this summer and feature abstract art. Be prepared to experience true freedom in art-making as we toss aside tight or restrictive habits and trade them for unabashed creativity and play! Even if you've never picked up a paintbrush, this workshop will have you taking home a finished, professional looking, abstract painting after only 9 hours of guided instruction. Every single painting made in class will be individual, unique and in your own style. Learn to recognize what you love, what colours suit you and the mark-making sensibilities that appeal to you. Week 1 - We'll lay the foundation - texture, colours, background, light collage elements etc and leave it to dry. Week 2 - The first major EDIT. Week 3 - the final edit and finishing.
Provided ($50value) - Acrylic and latex paints (limited colour palate). Mediums and glues.
- Some textural elements and collage elements.
- The use of stencils, stamps mark making tools, brushes and studio supplies.
Needed to Bring- Your canvas or board or panel that you wish to paint on (make sure it fits in your vehicle or consider a diptych or tripych.
- Specific paint colours and textural elements if desired (beyond what we have).
PLEASE Note: If an outdoor finish or resin is desired, we will demonstrate that in class but you'll have to do it at home because it won't be dry to go home with.
Dates:Wednesday evenings, July 10, 17 and 24
