Workshop: Painting the Moment w/ Khalid Thompson


Saturday August 31 * Noon-130pm *$30 adults / $20 children * REGISTER

Painting the Moment is an abstract intuitive painting workshop. The objective is to use color application and action painting to create abstract works of art filled with dynamism, depth, and individual expression. Artists such as Ed Clark, Joan Mitchell, and Jackson Pollock brought notoriety to the process of action painting, where an artist uses immediacy and broad gestural expressiveness in order to transmit pure emotion onto the canvas. This will be an opportunity for participants to engage in the intuitive process of direct expression with the medium, developing a visual language unique to their identity. This workshop will be about self expression, not about how well one can paint or draw. In addition to encouragement and feedback throughout the workshop, Khalid will help facilitate a post-creation discussion during which participants can talk about their experiences.
