THIS IS EXPRESSIONISM
INSTRUCTOR:
AL B JOHNSON

Abstract Expressionism was an art movement popular during the 40’s and 50’s that involved famous abstract artists like Jackson Pollock, Franz Kline, Willem do Kooning, an Mark Rothko. Much of their nonobjective paintings are rich in color and texture, dealing with movement and the ways that colors interact to form interesting images.

It is my intention to demonstrate the techniques used by many of these artists to allow students to create their own Abstract Expressionist pieces. Each class will be in an atmosphere of positive reinforcement and good background music with lots of chances to interact with your instructor and other students.

This is a four-week class that will meet weekly on Saturdays. Each participant will receive a punch card that will allow each student to make up any class they might miss. So please don’t worry if you can’t make all class dates.

MATERIALS
The cost of the class is $100/4 lessons with a $30 material fee due at the first class. This will provide you with paint, brushes and one 16x20 canvas for each week. If you decide that you need more supplies you can either buy your own or you can purchase additional supplies from me. Learning this type of art is an extended process so if you wish to continue classes after your 4-week session is complete you can do so by simply purchasing another punch card and paying an additional material fee.
