Expressionism is a free and uninhibited way of working with acrylic paints that allows students to bypass the limitations of objectivity and paint in a totally subjective manner. The first segment of the class involves applying an under painting with random colors, shapes and strokes. The second segment starts with examining and absorbing the initial impressions contained in the under painting, appreciating and observing the colors, layers and subconscious images revealed. The final product is an example of colorist and expressionist work, but more importantly opens a connection between the artist and his/her psyche. Supply list. Ages 16 to Adult.
The cost of this one-day workshop is $95. If you are a member of the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center the cost is only $85.
