Pathways to Abstraction with Toni McDowell


22 - 23 March 2017

How to make the leap from literally representing a topic to an abstract painting? This course is an opportunity for students with some painting experience to develop their skills and imagination.

Through structured and one-on-one tuition the course charts the steps towards building an abstract image. Practical methods and techniques are explored including mark-making, collage, layering colour and painting without brushes. 

Each student will take home a new visual language and a completed abstract canvas.
