Exploring Abstraction Intensive returns!

Come along to Merryn Trevethan’s popular EXPLORING ABSTRACTION INTENSIVE on Sunday 5th August!

This is a one day workshop where you will explore abstract strategies for creating work through a series of structured exercises for creating work and generating ideas. Working from unique still life setups you will incorporate some of the fundamental elements of drawing and painting to help push your perception towards a more abstract approach.

You will experiment with different types of lines, gesture and mark making, while considering the role of composition, scale and the picture plane in the creation of dynamic artworks. The importance of negative space in creating form and space will be explored.

Places are limited, book your spot HERE!
