STUNNING ABSTRACTS WITH MIXED MEDIA & SOFT PASTELS

(No petroleum-based solvents in this workshop.) Learn to layer in both dry and wet processes. Set yourself free with exuberant mark making on several different types of surfaces as you explore abstract art. This class is open to all levels, including adventurous beginners who want to explore the versatility of this vibrant medium.

This workshop with Mira will be a joyous adventure into abstract art. See what color, composition, line, value, mark making and edges can do when you are freed from the constraints of representational art.
