Join Debora Stewart in this three-day workshop and explore abstraction and abstract realism in soft pastel! Debora is the author of Abstract Art Painting: Expressions in Mixed Media by Northlight Books. Her work has won numerous awards from Pastel Society of America, Pastel Journal Magazine and International Artist Magazine.
Galleries in Atlanta, Scottsdale, Madison and Kirkwood, Missouri represent her.
Workshop will include intuitive and expressive exercises for artists, creating abstracts from source material such as photos and drawings, color studies, elements of art, color theory, use of underpainting to aid in abstract development, use of surfaces and grounds, combining abstraction and realism to create florals, landscape, portraits and more.
You will also learn how to create a series of works and evaluate your paintings and bring them to conclusion. The workshop contains artist demonstrations, informative discussions and thorough handouts for each participant.
Debora’s workshops are energetic, non-threatening and filled with information to start
you on the road to developing your own abstract expression. Past participants have given her workshops rave reviews.
Come ready to explore!
