abstraction towards non-objective painting

Sunday, August 9 to August 14
5 days, $495 + HST
Enthusiastic beginners to experienced artists welcome!


Back for another great workshop – Steve Rose returns to Creativity Art Retreat!

This workshop will take you into the realm of non-objective painting, whether you are an experienced or novice painter. Starting with a number of warm up exercises and projects, subject matter will gradually be reduced until you areSteve Rose BlackHole_lg painting without any subject at all! You will be encouraged to work on your own projects or the instructor can assign topics and/or approaches for you and your work.

Non-objective painting can be challenging but the skills learned and the added freedom of expression would benefit any art practice. Each day will start with a brief informal lecture, which can be very motivating and open up new and fresh possibilities within your own art work. There will be ongoing individual critiques throughout the week in a focused, safe, and supportive environment.
