There are approaches that can make a static painting become dynamic.  These include varying spacing between forms; varying sizes, colors and textures of shapes; using diagonal lines and placement of lines and shapes; overlapping lines and shapes; using bold and energetic lines and colors.  In this workshop, we will explore these techniques, both on papers and stretched canvases.
During the class, you will receive a handout containing the curriculum and extensive examples from modern and contemporary artists to illustrate the wide array of approaches used by artists.
Provided Supplies and Materials Fee: The instructor will supply the materials (acrylic brushes (big and small), heavy and fluid acrylic paints; watercolor and other papers; black and white gessoes; modeling paste; gels; collage materials, texture making tools, papers and smaller canvases) for which there will be a $35 supply fee.
