About The Workshop:
Have you ever stood in front of a painting, taken by its visual power and yet absolutely bewildered by its meaning?
Abstraction finds its roots in ‘intuition’ of the artist and ‘freedom’ for the artist as well as for the viewer. As any abstract artist will tell you, painting what you see doesn’t mean you have to paint it exactly as you see it! Instead, why not take inspiration from the landscapes around you, but turn them into beautiful abstract paintings? The most important thing to understand about abstract art is that it does NOT have to have a meaning. The main purpose is not to tell a story, but to encourage involvement and imagination. Allowing participants to express themselves freely by choosing their own colors and patterns. It doesn't have any rules and no time limit, you can keep working until you run out of paint, and let your imagination run wild on your canvas.
In this workshop, you will be free to create the painting with your sense of color and patterns, with our guidance. The artist will choose a specific landscape location and everyone can paint along. You will be taught step by step on how to mix colours and the steps by which you will create the abstract painting. The painting will be unique for each person based on his/her choice. All you need to do is listen to your inner self and create an abstract made by you!
