Acrylic Painting 2 – Shape, Balance, and Etal Adnan

Acrylic Painting 2 – Shape, Balance, and Etal Adnan

Class Description:
In this session we will focus in the use of shape and balance in painting while using Etal Adnan’s work to guide us.

In the first class we will look at shape and its importance in painting. We will examine not only Adnan’s, but other artists paintings to see how they have utilized shape to make their work stronger. We will then create our own paintings that focus on using shape.

During the second class, we delve into balance and explore how different artists use this principle in their paintings. We will then do a painting project that focuses on the use of balance.

For the third class, we look at a few of Adnan’s iconic works and students will have the opportunity to learn her techniques while replicating one of her paintings.

In the last two classes, students will bring in their own reference image and we will go over composition, colour choice, editing and image transfer. Students will have the opportunity to work on this painting for a total of 4 hours.

Note – Students that have taken this class with Jess before know that we do NEW projects every session, so you won’t get bored taking this class multiple times!
