About the event

Nature’s range of light and atmospheric personalities; her variety of colors, shapes, and textures, are all inherently abstract. We will use ultra-simplification; reduction in detail (subtractive); expressive mark-making; texture effects along with color alteration and size distortion as pathways toward abstraction.

Please Note:  There are no make-up classes or fee reimbursement for student absenteeism. There is no prorated tuition for classes that the student cannot attend. The instructor or the Carolina Artist Gallery reserves the right to postpone classes due to circumstances beyond the instructor or CAG’s control, such as severe weather, staff illness, or other emergencies. Instructor will provide make-up classes for classes cancelled in these cases. CAG reserves the right to cancel any class due to insufficient enrollment. Refunds are issued for cancelled classes only. We make every effort to notify students of postponements and cancellations at least 24 hours before the first scheduled class. Dates and times are subject to change as necessary.
