Abstract Painting

Aug 5 -9 2019 9am – 12pm
Ages 14 – 18

Throw out objective reality and learn one of the purest forms of expression, abstract painting. Instructed by local artist Cristian Andersson and using the basic elements of art, students will develop one or more abstract paintings during this beginner to experienced level camp. 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.

Members $185 single registration ($165 for multiple registrations)
Non-members $205 single registration ($185 for multiple registrations)

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.
