This discussion-based workshop explores how contemporary artists employ abstraction to communicate ideas and create a range of effects. It features works by regional artists including Eric Aho, Colleen Randall, and Esmé Thompson, paintings by Aboriginal Australian artists, and recent acquisitions by contemporary African artists. In the studio, participants will experiment with mono printing and collage to make a small group of abstract works to take home. No previous art experience necessary. Enrollment is free, but limited. Please register by February 1.
