Learn Abstract Expression in Acrylics | with Peter Griffen


Abstract Expression in Acrylics | with Peter Griffen

Abstraction, colour and energy are the key concepts of this one day acrylic painting workshop. Join Peter Griffen for a day of hands-on experimental, abstract and semi-abstract painting. Peter will demonstrate many acrylic painting techniques, with a particular emphasis on composition, line, strong colour and collage. Simple projects will be set and participants will be encouraged to work at their own rate and in their own way, allowing themselves to be guided by the painterly effects that they produce. Intuition, self-expression and individuality will be encouraged. In this workshop you will ‘take a line for a walk’ and enter the world of abstraction. Students will use a variety of different approaches from splashes, dripping, scraping and collaging, to create a truly imaginative abstract work.
