About the Workshop

 

Lois Perdue tells The Rickie Report, “This class is even for those artists who have never attempted to paint in an abstract style before. With my guidance and the easy-to-explore, non-intimidating mini-format, even those who have only worked in a realistic style can paint an abstract painting! For those who have taken my mini-abstract workshops before and want to explore larger formats, please “go for it” in this workshop.

 

Expect to go home with at least ½ dozen 5 x 7 mini abstract paintings-ready to frame!! But this class though isn’t just about abstract painting:

“It’s about learning texturing techniques, building layers of glazes and paints to create dimensions and how to use your own failed paintings as collage to make your paintings sizzle!
