"Emerging at the close of WWII, Abstract Expressionism was a creative earthquake that altered the landscape of modern art, generating revolutionary new approaches to scale, mark-making and composition."--Kate Siegel

From the 1930's--1960's, Abstract Expressionism offers painters a wealth of examples of artists who gave themselves permission to INVENT and DISCOVER while painting. This four week course will cover this revolutionary period in painting in 4 sections, spotlighting key artists in the movement and appropriating palette, treatment of positive/negative space and scale considerations on both primed and unprimed surfaces, and with both traditional and nontraditional materials and tools.

Materials: Oil or water based house paint/enamel (choose water-based OR oil-based as a focus), unprimed surfaces (your choice, canvas, paper, wood), rags (plus more rags), extra large pad of paper palettes,  traditional (brushes, palette knives) and/or untraditional (sticks, plaster/drywall spreader, housepainting brushes, garden/kitchen tools, buckets/bowls/vessels) and odorless spirits or turpentine (if working in oil).
