CREATIVE JUMP-IN: Abstracting from Reality
with Lisa Flowers Ross
Wednesday, August 26, 2020 - 10:00 AM
Using photos of our beautiful Gem State for inspiration, participants will work through several exercises on paper that explore design elements and principles such as line, shape, repetition and value. The focus of this process is to learn different approaches of abstracting from reality that can be used in designing future artworks. Participants will leave with a work of art made of either fused fabrics or collaged papers.
Class takes place Tue & Wed, Aug 25 & 26 from 10am–4pm.
Medium: Mixed Media Collage
Age and ability: 16 yrs. and older, beginners welcome
