Effective Abstraction

Abstraction lies at the heart of all good painting. From figurative masters such as Caravaggio to abstract pioneers such as Mondrian this course explores how they used visual design  as a basis to give their work inherent visual unity and strength.

Effective Abstraction is intended to provide you with the skills you need to make better design decisions when creating new works, because it’s always difficult to paint your way out of a bad concept.


From  £499 with our Pay Now pricing , as a stand alone 3 day workshop.

Effective Abstraction is workshop one of our Contemporary Oils Today Certificate Course, and may be taken as an extended four day course as part of the full three month Certificate.

This course includes all materials used on and for the workshop (just bring yourself!), plus a light lunch, notes, refreshments and tuition by one of our trained tutors, plus a  full time studio assistant so you don’t need to set up or scrub down.
