What's Included

This course will focus on the importance of composition in abstract art. Balancing a composition through the use of energized tension, abstract work becomes a success. Experimenting with collage, line-work, watercolor and finally acrylic paint, students will learn the basics of composing an abstract piece of art. The basic concepts of positive and negative space, color relationships, shapes and forms and the use of direction in a composition are concepts that can be used in all art genres. Students will complete one collage, at least one ink and watercolor and one final acrylic painting.
