Painting the Moment - Kids Edition

(Abstract intuitive painting workshop)

Khalid Thompson, Instructor

Materials (included): Acrylic paint markers and drawing pad paper

Duration: 6 week class/ 60 mins per week

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 energy, color, and individual expression. Action painting is where an artist uses immediacy and broad gestural movements in order to express pure emotion onto the canvas. This will be an opportunity for the kids 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.
