Abstract Landscape Painting

Aug 30 & 31, 9:00 AM-4:00 PM 
Media: Acrylic, None
Skill Level: All Levels


The landscape lends itself to rich interpretation and expression. Using acrylic paints and personal photo references, make sense of this subject matter as a jumping off point for abstraction as you explore composition, mark-making, and paint application.


Through demonstrations and discussions, Beki will review the basics of acrylic painting before moving into more experimental techniques. Students will work to create their own abstract landscape paintings with individualized feedback from the instructor and group. Open to all levels of experience. More advanced painters will have the opportunity to push the boundaries of their painting practice, while beginners will develop skill.

Tuition: Members: $ 225.00 / Non-Members: $ 250.00
