"I just wanted to thank you again for a very thoughtful and insightful workshop! Your gentle suggestions and warm encouragement made the three days a time when we could all explore and create with freedom from judgement. " Dorothy Siemens
"Yesterday was a wonderful experience! You enabled me to push my boundaries even further. I had come to the Abstract Painting Workshop with the conscious intention of being blown out of my box. ... The abstract painting showed me the joy and exuberance I have in me. ...I couldn’t be more delighted! Thank you. "

This workshop focuses on developing abstract work and how the process opens up creative possibilities in your painting. We look at how you work, what you have done in the past and what has influenced you. Each session begins with a group discussion on these and relevant matters followed by group exercises and developing your own painting. Abstraction facilitates ways of recognizing and moving your visual vocabulary forward, both technically with a focus on compositional development and expressively. You are encouraged to work as large as you like which assists in experimentation. Because groups are small each person works at their own level and pace. One to one discussions as well as group critiques allow for ample feedback and a supportive exploratory environment.
