The Why


When I came to Abstract, or non-representational, Art I was completely clueless. I had no idea what I was supposed to DO, what I was aiming for or how to begin. All that I knew was that I loved abstract art.

This course is built on the answers to those early questions, and also the ones that have come later:


  • How do I evaluate my work?

  • What is good and what is better?

  • Is there a way to work that is somewhat linear-- like background, mid ground, foreground?

  • How do I wake up a piece that is dull or simplify a piece that is too cluttered?

  • How do I get the different areas of the piece to connect?

  • And then... how do I get good at this?

To that last question: collage.


Collage is a natural for learning the art of arranging and combining. You get fast results, you can try many ideas without committing, and it is especially great for off-the-wall ideas.

So in this course we will be doing simple collage on paper. You may use any materials that you like as your collage elements.


Each week you will receive a written lessons, video demos, and assignments. We will have live coaching calls each week to get feedback on your homework assignments.

If you have been at this abstract art thing for awhile, and are looking for deeper answers and a group to propel you forward, I hope you will join us.
