An abstract piece by Mary Deveau

Loosen up and have fun at abstract painting class

Artist Mary Deveau will guide students towards creating a painting that is simply about painting at an upcoming abstract painting class.

Learn more about abstract painting with Deveau on Wednesdays, from Feb. 24 to March 16, from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at the Campbell River Art Gallery studio.

The class will explore creative mark making, abstracting forms, colour theory and paint applications through a series of exercises that encourage painting intuitively, letting go of outcome and being open to change and surprise.

Participants will be using methods of painting that will induce spontaneity, like painting to music, dripping, splattering, flinging and smearing, to free the mind and to inspire students to loosen up and have fun.

The class costs $120 for Campbell River Art Gallery members and $140 for non-members.

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