Designing the Abstract Painting - A Cruciform

$ 170  


 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 wotk with the “rule of thirds” with either a high cross or low crossing line. We’ll build out from our cruciform with simple 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
