Workshop: Concepts of Abstract

Instructor Samantha Spalti

Saturday, Feb. 24 – Sunday, Feb. 25, 2024, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Class limited to 8 students. $95, non-refundable

More than just slapping paint on a canvas, abstract (non-representational) art is about ideas and feelings. In this two-day workshop, we will explore how to express those ideas and feelings without representation. We will be dealing with the “why” of painting, not the “what.” The “how” is then determined by that “why.”

Day One

Exploration through dialogue, walking the gallery and discussion, how some of our artists convey ideas. Bring an image of an abstract work that speaks to you.

Day Two

Exploration will include putting paint to canvas. Do not expect to walk away with a finished piece (but you’ll have ideas worth pursuing). Includes one-on-one attention for each participant.


Plan on bringing your own canvases and materials – what you’re comfortable working with –  acrylic paints, brushes/palette knives, etc. This isn’t the workshop to play with new materials. Also bring snacks/lunch.
