Abstract Expressionists

This course focuses on Abstract Expressionism and artists that best represent this type of art.

Students use this to create, and give meaning to their own work, in the spirit of the abstract expressionists. Projects utilize a number of different materials with acrylic paint as the primary medium.

Some materials are provided, please pay instructor a materials fee of $40.
