Abstract Painting (Ages 14 -18)

Saturdays, Jun 13 & 20, 2020 9am – 1pm (two sessions)
Ages 14 – 18

Instructor: Cristian Andersson

Throw out objective reality! Using the basic elements of art, students will develop one or more acrylic abstract paintings during this class. We will discuss the work of abstract expressionists for inspiration (Pollock, Kline, Krasner, Frankenthaler, Rothko, de Kooning, etc.), but the direction of the individual student may vary from there. All supplies included.

Certain campers may qualify for financial assistance. APPLY HERE

Cristian Andersson is an artist who works out of Matchbook Studio in Appleton, Wis. While he primarily creates abstract oil paintings, in 2016 he started branching off into installation and performance pieces that deal with contemporary concerns: the overwhelming nature of our news, navigating interpersonal communication as it becomes more abstracted through social media, and the balance between notions of the self and the greater community. He is also involved in community art events: curating small exhibitions of local artists, teaching classes to middle and high school students, and working with students from UW-Oshkosh in an annual off-campus invitational exhibition.
