Karen Knutson will teach her approach to thinking in an abstract manner, using acrylics paints. She will teach good design tips and several fun ways to start paintings, so that magical things guide the artists to creative compositions. One technique actually involves scraping paint across the paper using a credit card and the end result is similar to painting like Gustav Klimt!  Otherwise we will using brayers, brushes, sticks, rubber tools, Qtips and our fingernails to get unusual marks on the surface of the paper.  We will take traditional subjects and talk about ways to abstract them. By the end of the class, we will be working much looser. This workshop is guaranteed to expand your creativity and imagination! A Bonus of this workshop is one day , we will learn how to make a wire drawing. This is done with a permanent marker and looks like a wire sculpture when completed. It's a very popular technique that everyone really loves!!! Karen gives lots of individual help, and believes that painting should be fun. Come ready to get loose and have a great time!
