We're so excited to invite Portland artist Hannah Hirsch to the studio! Hannah has developed a process of creating abstract paintings inspired by memory and visual meditation. She will lead us through an afternoon of intuitive painting (with demonstrations and instruction) and you will leave with a new way of creating wildly colorful abstract compositions.
This is an all-levels class, students will be engaged regardless of past experience.
Supply list (please bring with you):
1-2 primed canvases, panels, or heavyweight paper of your choice, size 12x14 or smaller (square or rectangle is fine). We'll have extra paper for sharing.
Acrylic paint: Any/all of your favorite colors
A few brushes in various sizes (bigger is better) and a palette knife for mixing
Your favorite palette (I suggest a disposable palette pad or a Sta-Wet palette)
Optional: Pastels, markers
*Students may borrow all supplies from the studio for an additional $10. Select when signing up.
*We'll be using acrylic paint to allow for fast drying, mixed media and layering. However the techniques learned in this class will translate to other media (oil, watercolor, collage, etc.) in your own studio practice.
Hannah Hirsch is a visual artist from central Maine. Her work explores the themes of memory and time through use of texture, color, and form. Having experimented with textile, fiber art, and interior design, Hannah now focuses primarily on abstract painting using acrylic paint and other mixed media.
