Abstract Painting with Geoffrey Harley
This course is for the beginner and the intermediate painter. We will examine different experimental approaches to pure abstraction - manipulating paint on a surface to create lines, shapes and textures that interact in a structured way. Exercises will be referenced to art history and to the elements of art to increase the theoretical understanding of the work. Whilst acrylic paints are the main focus, participants are encouraged to use a range of media, beginning with smaller exercises and moving onto a major painting. Please bring any sketchbooks, experiments or paintings done in the past.
