Abstracting the Figure with Patt Scrivener


Join Patt for a creative adventure in contemporary figure painting. In this workshop, students will learn how to see, interpret and use techniques in order to create looser figurative paintings. Students will work from a photo reference and intuition. Students will be encouraged to focus on shape, edges, value, texture, composition, juxtaposition, technique, artistry, individuality and the application of materials. All mediums are welcome; however the focus will be Acrylic, collage and mixed media. The course is recommended for the adventurous beginner as well as the painter with experience. Come prepared to leave your expectations at the door and be ready to take risks as you embrace abstracting the figure.
