For this workshop we’ll cover a little art history around the women of Abstract Expressionism who were making bold gestures, individualized expression and improvisational effects and wreaking havoc in the mid-1940’s
I’ll have images for inspiration, and we’ll create our own pieces using some of the new GOLDEN colors. We’ll do a little excavating and mark making with tools and finally, use PanPastel colors to add subtle effects

Materials Fee $20 paid at beginning of class includes:

includes shared GOLDEN colors, Pastel Ground and PanPastels, use of mark making/painting tools and Silver Brush Bristlon Flat brushes. The new GOLDEN colors include Azo Gold, Napthol Pink, Isoindolinone Yellow, Naples Yellow Deep and Benzimidazolone Burnt Orange
