Inspiring the mind through abstract painting!
For every workshop, we invite different artists from all over the world as guest instructors to teach their perspective of Abstract Wild - Intuitive Landscape Painting. Every artist has their own unique style and method of painting. They will guide you step by step on how to paint these beautiful floral cards. What's better than learning from the best?
10% of the proceeds will be donated to Greenpeace,
a global network of independent campaigning organizations that use peaceful protest and creative communication to expose global environmental problems and promote solutions that are essential to a green and peaceful future.
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 or 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 a painting with your sense of color and patterns, with an artist's guidance. The artist will choose a specific landscape location and everyone can paint along. The finished painting will be unique for each person based on their choices. All you need to do is listen to your inner self and create a beautiful abstract piece made by you!
