Abstract Painting
Instructor: ANNE MCELROY
Jan 29th - March 18th. (Wednesdays)
6:30-9:00 pm (8 classes)
$300.00 + tax
Limit 8 per class

The purpose of this class is to actively encourage exploration and the freedom which comes from simplifying the subject matter or breaking away from it. Although the class will begin as painting on a two dimensional surface, Anne welcomes you to take liberties. The first and last classes will be introductory and personal choice, and the remaining six classes will focus on subject matter which is, at first defined, then later expanded on and personalized. There will be classes devoted to Still Life, Landscape, Portraiture, Music, Found Object, Mixed Media... something for everyone. You will find Anne flexible and supportive in your quest to challenge yourselves with abstract painting.

Anne has been an abstract painter for many years dabbling also in a variety of alternative media: clay, fibre, pen, book-making, and jewellery-making. Paintings are abstracted from what she sees in her personal surroundings, landscapes and her responses to music. She has written, illustrated and hardbound two childrens’ books and most recently finished a book for an adult audience about animal welfare issues called Bewildered by Loss ....Working to Better Their Lives. Her educational background is an MFA and MEd which have allowed her to teach, mentor and be involved in workshops and adjudications.
