“Take a line for a walk”: Abstraction, colour and acrylic paint with Peter Griffen.
Starting with ‘abstract loosening up’ exercises, participants in the workshop will then begin to work in their own individual ways following on from these beginnings. Some may choose to work totally abstract, while others may decide to include some representation in their imagery, incorporating the free use of paint and other materials. “Take a line and your mind for a walk”.
Collaging is emphasized, and the participants are encouraged to invent, and experiment with, new techniques; brushing, scraping, splashing, dripping, etc.
Demonstrations and appropriate suggestions will be made when needed.
The use of intuition and free thinking will be particularly encouraged as well as the the development of vivid colour.
This workshop takes place on 25 June, from 10am to 3pm.
