WRKSHOP ON ABSTRACT ART


Report on abstract workshop 

Twenty members attended the workshop on  abstract art run by Betty (Rackham) We first looked at a powerpoint presentation Betty had prepared on the development of abstract art ending with an examination of the different ways of abstraction which  

exist today. She then showed examples of her own paintings which illustrated these before we tried a few exercises to produce simple paintings using shape and colour and line to express our personal feelings about a subject. After the lunch break we developed this approach to produce a final painting.

 Betty is an excellent teacher and this well organised and prepared workshop inspired us to think about and approach our paintings in a different way to our usual style with very satisfying results. Hopefully this will continue in the future.
