Loosen up and have some fun painting

Artist Mary Deveau will guide students towards opening their mind, at an upcoming Abstract Painting class.

Learn more about abstract painting with Deveau on Wednesdays, 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. Participants will use 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 Art Gallery members and $140 for non-members. Space is limited, so don’t delay in registering. For more information, contact the Art Gallery at 250-287-2261 or email programs@crartgallery.ca
