Directions in Abstraction

The course is now FULL for 2021.

Directions in Abstraction is a ten week course into developing abstract art.

Dates are : 8th March 2021 until 17th May with one week rest.

The course covers finding inspiration, techniques in abstract painting including colour, texture, collage and scaling work up, alongside how to develop a helpful art practice to support your painting. The course is for artists with some experience of painting who are interested in developing and loosening up their art and who have an interest in abstraction.

Directions in Abstraction is an online course with a difference as the teaching is delivered live rather than recorded which means you get to ask Lin questions as she is teaching and demonstrating. Group size is limited to twenty people so that Lin can get to know each of you and your work and support you. The course builds week by week with and is structured to provide a solid base into working abstractly looking at the techniques and skills of abstract painting along with sources of inspiration and mindset.
