Maximum 10 Minimum 4

When we think of abstract paintings and painters, we think about Jackson Pollock and Abstract Expressionism. Decades before there were equally famous abstract painters and abstract art styles. We will cover four of these painters who produced art in three different non-objective abstract art styles.

We will view their paintings. I will discuss each art style, their paintings, and what each painter was doing with their paintings.

I will demonstrate techniques. You will have the opportunity to produce six to eight individual paintings.

You do not need to know how to draw to produce successful paintings in these styles. You do not need to be an experienced painter to produce wonderful paintings in these styles. Likewise, if you are an experienced painter, these paintings are different from realistic painting. You will have a handout to take notes if you wish.
