D’Art Center: Abstract Art Classes by Jorge Saenz (3 sessions) Oct. 19-21

The classes are designed to run three in a row so that students can apply concepts learned during the first session during the remaining two sessions. During the first 2 1/2 hour class, students will create 15 minute art pieces to build speed and manipulation of mediums. During the second and third 2 1/2 hour sessions, Jorge will guide students to create one piece taking time to assess and make decisions.

Students will create abstract art with acrylics and other mediums on paper as Jorge guides students through the following concepts:

-Introduction to acrylic paint. (Learning how to use different brushes and what they do.)
-Building value within your work from the beginning. (Tint, Tone and Shade)
-Composition
-Balance
-Protecting negative space. (How to push back shapes and create perspective within your work.)
-Repetition of Shapes
-How to veil your colors with transparency.
-Introducing mixed media into your work. When and how. (Graphite, Charcoal, Colored pencils, Soft pastels, Markers and Crayons).
