EXPLORING ABSTRACT PAINTINGS IN ACRYLICS - THURSDAYS
2:00pm - 5:00pm
Each class session will be a unique set of experimenting in paint application using alternate ways to apply paint and make marks on and into the painted surface. We will be exploring in depth each student’s unique visual voice. We will be looking for the heart of why we paint, why we are attracted to certain colors, and combinations of color, why we like certain shapes and lines. Although we will be working abstractly in these classes, the information learned will be useful in all styles of painting. It will even help students define their unique style.

Patricia moved to Ft. Smith, Arkansas in 1996 and taught at the Center for Art Education and the Ft. Smith Art Center, now named the Ft. Smith Regional Art Museum (RAM). She also taught small groups weekly and workshops in the surrounding communities during the 20 years she resided in Arkansas.
Patricia has an extensive background in portraiture, landscape and abstract. Since moving to Florida, her personal work is changing, becoming more abstract and brighter in color.
