Completed workshops

Sara Judith: The Abstracted Landscape

Sat Sept 28 thru to Mon Sept 30 (3 days)

Abstraction can be thought about as simplification. We need to learn to simplify in order to hook. This workshop explores ways to represent landscape images in simplified format. As well as hooking, we’ll play with art exercises to loosen up and generate ideas and designs. Topics covered will include design elements and principles, critiquing (or how to ask questions and get your friends to help solve problems), formatting, achieving depth in landscapes and ways to abstract. Bring several favorite photos to class – both in regular format and enlarged to letter size or 8”x10” and also in black and white 8”x10”. You will develop your own pattern and start hooking your own abstract landscape, and develop the skills to abstract landscape.
