Are you ready to go deeper with your abstract art? In this class, you'll learn how to generate ideas and develop them into abstract paintings.

You'll see me working on various paintings that explore a theme. It's a very real process with plenty of experimentation and problem-solving. As I work, I talk through the supplies, techniques, and design choices I am making.

As you can see, I've chosen an earthy, nature-inspired theme. You might prefer to work with bright colours and a completely different mark-making style. That's completely up to you. This class is all about taking your sparks and turning them into creative fire!

Class Materials

I use all sorts in this class as I'm deliberately trying to think outside the box and spark possibilities for you. I can't stress enough that you don't need all of the supplies listed to enjoy this class.

Many students enjoy watching the videos first before making their supply choices.
