Neuse, Jon – Painting Abstract Landscapes


This MCA class is an exploration of painting abstract landscapes.  In the first class you will be making sketches and paintings at a site not on the grounds of the Art Center.  Those initial works will be used to develop paintings in the next four classes.  As you develop your personal style you will expand your knowledge and use of the principles of art vital to creating balanced compositions.  You will work at your own pace and will participate in critiques of your work and those of other participants.
