Abstract Art

Abstract Art may be described as energy and motion made visible. This type of art helps you to train your inner eye and set free a part of your psyche that previously did not have voice.

This course will help you to learn represent what you see in the word around you with your own artistic vision. You won’t just copy the subjects around you. You will learn how to see and abstract the world, learning to create art by prioritizing instinct or unconscious vision.

What is in the course?

What types of brushes and paper you can use.

How to breath and meditate during the painting process.

How to make your painting look balanced and compositionally pleasing to your eye.

How to let your watercolour wash flow and how to control it.
