Adventures in Abstract Painting
With James Lawrence
This ever-popular term class explores abstract painting concepts and techniques utilising acrylic paints, gels and additives.
Students will move out of the workroom for the morning, taking time to look closely at the natural world around them. From the wispy clouds in the sky to the ants on a concrete pathway, they will record their surroundings using pencil and paper. Inspired by these observations each child will then compose a painting, looking closely at the details of sun and shadow, completing their mixed media artwork with collaged details to represent the textures, shapes and colours discovered.
Children: 6 - 10
