Saturday & Sunday, Feb 9 & 10, 10am - 4pm
Instructor: Margaret Dwyer

Abstract art explores the relationship of form, color, and composition without recognizable images. This fact allows viewers more latitude for personal interpretation. Painting this way encourages an expressive freedom that is not always allowed when painting representational imagery. Use watercolor techniques to learn the essential concepts of successful abstract painting. Methods and techniques will be demonstrated and applied to this style of painting. Some watercolor experience suggested.
