painting techniques, and brush up on your art history - all in one class!

Start each week learning about an artist - their life and influences, the themes that run through their work, their style and personal philosophies of artmaking, and their unique use of colour and line.
In the second half of each class, you will receive guidance on techniques, materials, and process so you can create paintings inspired by these powerhouse artists.
Whether you’re learning about the mystical beginnings of abstract art with af Klint or the revolutionary nature of polka dots with Kusama, learning to stain like Frankenthaler or drip like Sobel, you will be sure to be inspired by these incredible women of art history.
This class is suitable for anyone wanting to learn more about abstract painting. No previous experience is necessary.
