Abstract Expressionism - 1 Day Retreat (JAN 25)
ABSTRACT EXPRESSIONISM - 1 Day Retreat
with Jane Hostetler
January 25, 2020 (1 session)
Time: Saturday @ 10:00AM-3:00PM (w/ 1 hour lunch break)
A fun, loose, creative time out for adult artists! Explore, create, and evolve as as artist. This workshop explores the versatility and possibilities of abstract expressionism. You will work exclusively with line and color, and a few other uniquely added marks, to make several expressive pieces of art. You will create quick and expressive paintings with energy! Bring the medium you prefer to work in, watercolor or acrylic. Both will be demonstrated for each painting challenge, as well as a combination of both, ala mixed media! Your choice. You will work to create between 4 and 6 paintings with time to contemplate, develop and discuss. All delivered in a fun, collaborative, and non-intimidating environment. Any experience level welcome. Please join me for some artistic fun!
The Art Garage will supply basic acrylic and watercolor paints and various surfaces needed to paint on for this retreat. Please feel free to bring your own paints and brushes.
My professional history is rooted in design. Beginning with a BFA in Design, I spent the ﬁrst part of my career in Graphic Design. Later, I chose to teach while developing my studio work, which led to my decision to earn a Master of Arts Degree in Visual Studies. At present, I teach various Graphic Design & Studio Art courses in the Green Bay area. Currently, my studio is based in Green Bay WI, where I strive to produce an ongoing variety of original and commission works.
At present my work is shown at The Art Garage in Green Bay Wisconsin, with previous gallery installations at The Northwestern Mutual Gallery in Milwaukee WI, The Foster Gallery, Eau Claire WI, and Northeast Wisconsin Technical College open space.
