Abstraction, Balance and the Figure
Methods to Abstract the Figure and Background

In this exciting new course, Melinda will focus not only on abstracting the figure, but also truly seeing the entire design of the canvas. Emphasis will be placed on seeing all shapes as equal in importance. Various abstraction approaches will be covered as well as concepts to achieve balance in your abstract work.  You will walk away with specific ideas for abstraction and new ways to bring more emotional content to your work. Students should have a working knowledge of their medium. Oil and Acrylic painters welcome.
