About the Workshop

In this course the student will be challenged both technically and conceptually while exploring different modes of abstract painting. There will be an examination of various strategies that fluctuate between specific in-class assignments and the student’s own individual studio work. Drawing and collage will be used as a way to create imagery. The primary focus will be an elaboration of such basic ideas as color, tonal structure, scale and composition as developed in the foundation of abstraction in painting. The class will be structured as an open studio that will be supplemented with both individual and group critiques. Each day there will be a presentation to discuss the development of abstraction from continental European influences on the rise of post-war American abstraction, as well as an investigation of the current state of abstract painting.
