An introduction to thinking, drawing and painting in an abstract manner. Pulling ques from reality, we will use the still life, surrounding landscape, and photographs as input for abstraction. Students will explore mark marking techniques, build color palettes, and trick their minds in thinking differently through a series of non-traditional drawing and painting exercises. We will study the work of Henri Matisse, David Hockney, Robert Motherwell and Raimonds Staprans.
