Have you been curious to explore the endless possibilities of personal expression through abstract drawing?

This one day workshop will offer exposure to and exploration of methods of creating abstract imagery to translate mood, feeling and concept into a personal vocabulary. We will work in various media on paper after looking at some inspirational contemporary artists. Students will begin this workshop working first in black and white, before moving to color, to create a range of marks and a vocabulary of personal abstract gestures and forms.

We will explore working from music, memory, and intuition as inspiration.

Students will emphasize mark making, color, and gesture as an expression of mood and emotion. Personal, invented forms will stand in for specific imagery, in order to articulate the ideas students want to convey.

Some of the artists we may look at to gain inspiration from are:


We will explore working from memory, intuition, dreams, and specific subject matter as inspiration.


Students will emphasize abstract mark-making, form, and gesture to best express and articulate the mood and feeling they want to convey.


We will encourage each student's ability to discuss, critique, and present their work and that of their peers.
