Students will learn to loosen up their painting style, paint with more freedom and be more spontaneous and expressive. Diane will demonstrate how to build a foundation of structure using shape, value, color, and composition. A variety of abstract styles will be explored. Each day includes instructor discussion, painting demonstration, student painting time, and critiques of student work. Students will work with both brushes and palette knives. To see Diane’s work and decide if you want to explore this form of acrylic painting, visit her website at www.DianeDean.com. Some supplies will be available and a complete list will be posted here soon.
