Art gallery offers class for abstract enthusiasts

Artist Mary Deveau offers 'Express Yourself: Abstract Painting' class each Wednesday in March

Artist Mary Deveau will guide students towards creating unique and dynamic abstract paintings during an upcoming course at the Campbell River Art Gallery.

Deveau’s ‘Express Yourself: Abstract Painting’ class runs Wednesdays Mar. 4 to Mar. 25 from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at the Campbell River Art Gallery studio.

Students will explore their own artistic style — focusing on expressive gestures rather than representation of objects — to create a unique and dynamic abstract painting.

While students will consider elements of composition, colour, line, form and gesture, the class is mainly about exploration. Results are unpredictable but learning will happen over analysis, contemplation and discussion.

The class costs $110 for Campbell River Art Gallery members and $120 for non-members.

Space is limited, so don’t delay in registering.
