Beginner’s Guide to Abstract Painting

About Beginner’s Guide to Abstract Painting

Take the plunge into the world of abstract shape and form by exploring a range of painterly techniques and approaches. Drawing upon source material, you'll pare it back to its visual essence through the process of abstraction, with an emphasis upon shape, colour and texture. No prior painting experience is necessary!

Douglas Morland is a Glasgow-based visual artist whose recent exhibitions include a solo show at The Gallery of Modern Art, Glasgow, group exhibitions at La Friche, Marseille and Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art. This year he was also selected for a prestigious Visual Artist residency at Cove Park.

Tutor: Douglas Morland
Date: Monday 08 January – 26 March 2018
Time: 6pm – 8pm
Price: £120
Location: Studio 2

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Beginner’s Guide to Abstract Painting are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
