When I first began to attempt making “abstract art”, I knew what I liked in the museums, but I had no idea how to do it myself. Teachers would sit me down and tell me to just start painting colors and shapes. I would get this horrible anxiety of just feeling aimless and utterly lost.
Even after I figured out a way to 'get started', I really did not know what was good and what was not. I didn't know why a piece was not working, or ways to fix it. I wasn't sure what it was supposed to be "doing", if that makes sense.
I have since developed a method, and a teaching, for tackling these mysteries which I call, collectively, Abstract Composition. What I have found is that a few simple ideas can really move your art to a whole new level, and help your revision process immensely.
To help you get Abstract Composition working in your art making, I'm going to be hosting a FREE 60-minute training on Thursday, March 25th, at 2PM MDT.
In this workshop I will cover the following strategies for improving your art and art making:
what's the overall THING we are doing?
structures for an easy start
paying attention to value
using visual weight
This handful of ideas pack alot of power for moving your work toward better design and more focused revisions.
See you there!
