Abstraction Project with Sheila Moylan
Want to take your art to the next level?
Learn how to go beyond mere representation.
Join Sheila Moylan on Thursday, 11 June to find out.
In this two hour session we will look at how artists of the past have worked beyond their starting point of observational images to take them into the realms of abstraction and how some left representation far behind them.
Where do you start with your work? We will look at the elements that make a work good such as
composition, colour, line, shape, space or lack of it. All these things can be used in your Abstraction Project with Sheila Moylan.
“Object and subject are two different things. Take away object and you still have subject” -Jasper
