Summer School: Abstract Painting

About Summer School: Abstract Painting

We will be looking at how we can, as artists, interpret visual information found in the world around us and create bold and exciting works of art.

Participants will be encouraged to work from sources that we find in the visual world, whether this be from film, photography, videos from YouTube, or any other source of inspiration. We will look at technical skills including colour mixing, the use of wet and dry paint, density of material, application and the use of tools. Later, there will be the opportunity to bring other, more unconventional materials into the mix.

This course is suitable for all levels of participants, either experienced or inexperienced, or have never picked up a brush. With the support of an experienced tutor there is much to gain for all.

Course Outline:
Day 1
· Working with dry materials such as soft pastel on paper, to create an initial study to work from, using the visual resources that have been considered by students
· Learning about colour mixing and how to use oil paint
· Considering how oil paint can create the effect of wet and dry
· Using other objects and tools to apply oil paint with intent to replicate the marks produced on the initial studies
· Mixing paint with different materials/substances

Day 2
· Combing prior knowledge of materials and processes to create the final piece
· Developing the initial study as the painting to test out different possibilities before taking action
· Adding use of different media such as spray paint or resin

AGES 10 – 18
