September 28, 7-9PM. Artist, Justin Bean will lead participants (adults and ages 10+) through a playful exploration of paint with the intention of creating abstract art. Using acrylic paints and palette knives, we will explore both wet-on-wet gestural painting and the use of a dry base layer to create texture and dramatic color combinations. In addition, we will introduce tape into the painting process to create layered compositions with increasing complexity and vibrancy. The end goal is for each participant to produce at least one frame worthy painting. Materials fee: less than $7, or bring your own. (call studio for list) This class requires a minimum of 5 students to run.
