August 15­—Limitation is a Good Thing With the use of one color plus black and white, we will explore a range of color hues. Watercolor or acrylics can be used. If you have a landscape image, bring it for resource material.  Otherwise, you can paint intuitively.  Painting a landscape with a limited palette will delightfully surprise you.

We will paint our own version/interpretation of a Motherwell painting.

September 19—Paint an Abstract We will use collage materials as a resource to paint abstractly. First, we will lay out/glue our design onto a substrate with the collage pieces.  Then we will paint what we see from our collage abstract design.  Be conscious of colors and shapes while selecting and be conscious of how you place your design because this is what you will be painting as your resource.
