The Grammar of Abstract Composition In Acrylic Painting and Collage
Does “composition” conjure a set of rules that you should be paying attention to in your work? Do you strive for a “pleasing composition,” and is that enough to make a good work of art? Join us in this workshop where we'll approach composition as a playful and exploratory exploration, steering away from strict rules or guidelines. We’ll take a few visual elements and experiment with value, scale, arrangement, color, transparency, and more, to see how these aspects impact our images.

Mixed Media Collage and Mark Making
Learn to get past your negative inner voices and move forward boldly in your art with collage and mark making. I believe that mixing materials and techniques – painting, collage, and drawing – is one good way to gain more fluidity and freedom in your art making.

Composition Outside the Box: Collage and Assemblage
Cropping a piece is sometimes a tempting way to ‘resolve’ it. This workshop allows you to compose from a different point of view. Add, subtract, overlap, glue, tear, and stitch your materials together into surprising works of art! This class is for reasonably experienced artists. You must have work you can discard and plenty of collage paper.

Mixed Media Drawing
Free your creative spirit and discover practices that take the intimidation factor out of drawing. Find out what happens if you draw without looking at your paper, use a tool you can’t control, draw over collage, with thread, without a subject, inside and outside the lines.

Abstract Collage: Creating Compositions with Tissue Paper
This workshop is on Skillshare. Composition is perhaps the most elusive aspect of abstract painting. Since there is no specific object depicted in an abstract piece, composition - the way the elements work together on the canvas or page - takes a central role. In this Skillshare class I want to demystify some of the main components of abstract composition, making it accessible to anyone.
