Lesson: Organic Abstraction
Are you looking to further your oil or acrylic painting ability? Then this is the painting class for
you! As a long time, professional painter and fine art educator, David holds a plentiful amount
of experience in producing and teaching various styles of painting. Regardless of your amount
of experience, desired painting style, or subject preference, this class will assist in your growth
as a painter and an artist.
This in person class will begin with an introduction and a brief Power Point. Ultimately, this
class will guide you step by step through the stages of developing a painting. The primary
subject will be an organic abstract painting. Painting non-objective subjects can really benefit
an artist in learning about process and application. We will utilize real organic objects for
inspiration. Along with color mixing, one goal of instruction will address the importance of
creating a sketch and dynamic composition in paint. Given the time limit and the nature of the
class, we will primarily be working in “Alla Prima.” This term literally means working wet on
wet. Finally, instruction will cover the various layers of “building up” a painting to reach the end
goal. Recommended canvas size should be around 9” x 12” up to 16” x 20.”
