Abstracted Realism - 4 Day Workshop - Gibsons


Where: Gibsons, BC
When: August 2020

In this exciting 4 day workshop we will learn the techniques of mixed media on paper.  Some of the mediums we will experiment with are vine charcoal, charcoal pencil, pastel pencils, and acrylic paint. We will also learn to modify our thought process to see shapes and lines rather than subject matter. This the first step in learning to abstract and create a dynamic drawing with these mediums. You'll bring print outs or digital images of what interests you and we will abstract from there. Here are a few points of interest.

• preparing the paper - clear gesso

• learning to abstract from realism - slide show on thought process - moving things around, seeing lines and shapes

• practicing abstraction in a notebook and on newsprint

• learning the mediums

• start working with images vs outdoors

• creating layers
