Abstraction: a praxis engaged
Open your studio practice to new possibilities in this workshop designed for experienced artists working in abstraction. Students work on their own self-directed prompts and projects amidst one-on-one and group discussions and critiques structured by the instructor, highlighting color/material choices, the treatment of surface, and other elements of making work that affect content. Prompts and conversations take place in class to foster discourse and strengthen praxes. At the beginning of the workshop, students present a digital portfolio of their work as a stepping-stone to opening up a dialog about the form and content within their work.
