El Valle Artist Association will present an abstract workshop featuring Julie Bernstein Engelmann, Feb. 29, at the Pine Shadows Clubhouse, 2050 W State Route 89A, Cottonwood.
The workshop is scheduled 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. All levels are welcome. Cost for members is $55 and non-members $65.
What you will learn:
Julie’s layering technique gives you a powerful foundation for painting deep and luscious abstracts. You’ll be guided to enter the painting process naturally, ease into your own personal marks and forms, and weave beautiful depth and complexity.
Julie will demonstrate how to find the story in the “beautiful mess” and bring it out by enhancing its drama and visual flow.
You’ll leave with an acrylic painting that embodies three vital keys to successful abstract painting: meaning, naturalness, and spatial depth and flow.
Along the way, you’ll gain discernment and come to understand abstract painting more fully.
