The Cruciform - Designing the Abstract Painting

Jacqueline Sullivan
9:00 - 4:30
Mon Oct 9

[back to quicklinks]
$ 185  

A typical cruciform symbol is named after the Latin word for "cross-shaped", having a simple construction of two perpendicular intersecting lines. Using this shape in an abstract painting gives us a place to start and build from. We’ll work with the “rule of thirds” with either a high cross or low crossing line. We’ll build out from our cruciform with simle collage and texture. The class will use Golden Fluid Acrylics and Golden High Flow paint to build their paintings with thin layers of color. Students will receive a lot of individual attention and the painting that they leave with will be truly their own expression

Materials Fee $10 paid at beginning of class 

Supplies Needed  to bring for Class:

Water container for rinsing brushes
