Discover Abstract Art

with Christopher Beaty


Think, draw, and paint abstractly in this six-session course taught by Christopher Beaty. Explore a variety of techniques with an emphasis on finding what works for you as an artist. Chris will demonstrate drawing and painting intuitively and review the work of several abstract painters designed to help you understand the core concepts behind non-representational painting (painting without recognizable images).

During the course, you’ll be encouraged to work quickly and to try new things as a way to experience breakthroughs. You'll work on numerous (up to 20) small sketches and three or four paintings.

No experience necessary. This course is designed for anyone age 16 and above who:

  • Wants to explore non-representational painting.
  • Wants to strengthen and develop their own voice as a painter.
  • Is interested in taking risks with their painting.
  • Wants to have more confidence in their own way of painting.

Supply information for the course is included in your email confirmation. For safety, masks are required until further notice. Course# PNT108.121.01
