Workshop Description

We’ll start by painting paper, which we will cut into shapes and arrange into non objective compositions. Then we will take similar shapes and make people, places, and things. Abstraction and representation together. Whatever the subject, it is the arrangement of the abstract shapes, that gives strength to our representations. One does not rearrange things, one rearranges the shapes in things.

Materials List

  • Acrylic Paint.
  • White, Yellow, Red, Blue, Black.
  • Really, as simple as that. Must be acrylic, heavy body, if at all possible. They work best.
  • I use Golden Heavy Body Acrylic. A 5oz tube of white. Smaller amounts of the other colors should be enough, though the larger tubes are more economical and be use long after.
    White glue. Elmer’s or another white glue is fine. I use Lineco – Neutral pH Adhesive.
  • Scissors.
  • Masking tape, 1 inch wide
