For well over a hundred years modern art and abstracts have been promoting people to ask three questions. Why do one? Can anyone do one? How would I go about beginning one? After years of teaching I can say you should why do one. They are harder than they look, yes anyone can paint one, and I have tips and techniques to make the transition from realistic to the abstract. Using colors, shapes, focal points, and more of the elements and principles of design will make it easier for everyone. So if you want to challenge yourself and open up new doors of creativity, I say yes, take this class. It’s fun and you’ll learn a lot.
