The course will focus on painting abstracts. Participants will be encouraged to stretch their abilities and to try something "different". This could be an opportunity to work with new materials, to try different techniques and to seek unfamiliar results. It could be a time to be on the edge, to challenge yourself and to paint outside your comfort zone.
Artists have the freedom to paint with whatever tools and mediums they want. Likewise, for painting surfaces.
Artists should not feel they have to spend a lot of money on course materials. My list is meant to give you lots of room for choice.I believe it is a good thing to use workshops for exploration. Therefore, consider using a larger brush or a larger surface than you usually do. Consider bringing a product that you have not worked with before. Place yourself in a situation where you cannot easily control end results.
