Class description: Abstract painting is a fantastic way for decorative artists to expand their offerings. You can finish off a room and make a statement that is customized to your client’s liking. Using your skills as a finisher segues perfectly into abstract canvas work, as you utilize techniques you are already familiar with. In this class, you’ll create a canvas with depth and feeling, learning how to make art that isn’t just a decorative image on a wall, but one that evokes feeling, draws the viewer in, and has energy, and is memorable. To tap into your inner self and confidently express it on the canvas…this is the key to repeated commissions.
