About the Session

Participants will tap into their inner palette to create an abstracted portrait. This workshop is suitable for beginners and intermediate level and will focus on abstract painting, creating surface, energy of colours, gestural mark-making and various painting tools and techniques. Our first canvas will be purely for experimentation, and the second will result in a self-portrait that expresses our inner selves through colour, abstraction, composition and mark-making.
