An Ah Haa Online class

An exploratory course for artists of all levels including those new to abstract expressive drawing and painting. Discover the fundamental techniques of mark-making and acrylic painting through an innovative approach to color and composition. Experienced artists will further develop their painting practices through creative exercises merged with color harmony, compositional balance, and spontaneity. Product knowledge, applications, and textures are included. Develop observation skills and individual expression with an emphasis on creative thinking. Students are encouraged to explore their individuality while finding a balance between technique and the creative process. Beneficial for anyone interested in taking risks with painting, and for artists who want to strengthen their own voice and confidence as a painter. A private and personal critique with helpful resolutions to issues will be included after completion of this course to each participant.

During the zoom class, we will be discussing the lesson study, creative exercises and painting assignments. In addition, I will be creating a demo each week. Students will be connecting to a private Facebook group to post examples of their work and will become a permanent member of the group.

Note: Provided that our new building will be open as scheduled, Vickie’s upcoming live workshop scheduled for June 2021 will be our first! This online abstract painting course will be a great way to prepare for the workshop.


Materials list will be sent to students upon registration.
