Abstract – Acrylics

Art Workshop £35.00

Date: 21 November 2020

Time: 10:00am - 1:00pm

Location: Online (Zoom)

Is abstract painting an abstract concept that you’ve always wanted to learn but didn’t know where to begin?

This workshop will teach you how.  As a starting point we will work from life then progress to working from imagination based on a concept and inspiration images.



  • The basics of abstraction – abstraction from life
  • Tapping into the sub-conscious
  • Composition – creating a unified picture
  •  Colour theory

‘An interesting and enjoyable experience.  Accessible to all abilities and with great support.’ (student review)


The sessions will be hosted through Zoom.

Please download the Zoom app. If you haven’t zoomed before don’t worry, it’s not complicated. A little blue camera symbol will pop up on your phone, pad and laptop.

You’ll find the Zoom link for the sessions on the booking ticket AND I will send you the link via email that will take you directly to the sessions (no password required) on the day of the workshop.

I will start the session 15mins before the official start of the workshop. This will give us an opportunity to iron out any technical difficulties if there are any and have a chat 🙂
