Abstract Series in Acrylic
Add to your calendar
Date: April 25, 9:00 am
Location: Art Studio of the Center for the Arts
Details: In this class, students will learn about and experiment with abstraction and non-representational imagery. We will use drawing mediums to playfully explore shape, form, color and composition. We will also view and study work of famous abstract artists for inspiration. Finally, using acrylic paints and mediums, each student will complete a fun and surprising abstract series on three 6x6 cradled canvas panels that "go" together and are ready to hang. Instructor: Ivy Walker

This class is offered through WSCU Extended Studies. REGISTER HERE or by calling 970-943-2885.

ABOUT IVY
Ivy Walker creates temporary artworks in the land and documents these through photographs. She places handmade paper cut-outs, or other art materials, into the land to evoke a temporary, poetic presence. Her artwork explores 'the ephemeral' and how this quality, paradoxically, connects all life with the 'Infinite.'
Walker has a Master of Fine Arts in Painting and Drawing from the University of Colorado at Boulder, where she also taught Drawing and Art Foundations as a part-time lecturer. She received a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in Printmaking from Colorado State University. She is currently studying at Earth Based Institute in the Nature Connected Coaching program where she is incorporating creating art with nature and transformational coaching. Recently, she has shown work at Artcorps in Pueblo and in Denver at Redline Gallery. Her work is represented by Gallery 3 in Crested Butte. For more information, go to www.ivywalker.com.
