Fields of Colour: Four Part Virtual Abstract Painting Workshop


Would you like to experience the joy and freedom of abstract painting? Learn to paint colourful, joyful abstracts with award-winning artist Cassandra Gaisford. Small, social, virtual-in-person workshops.

The purpose of this workshop is to inspire you with new ideas, whether you are revising your work, beginning afresh or embarking on a new direction. This is why this workshop applies equally to the beginning and advanced artists. It covers core principles, including composition, values, colour harmony, texture, inspiration and other important elements of abstract art.

Over the course of this workshop, you will discover the unique process of intuitive painting, including mark-making, action paintings and engaging with a blend of tools to unveil countless approaches to create cohesive and joyous work with colour and composition. All while loosening up and losing yourself in the field of colour.

Beginning artists will receive support and encouragement. Cassandra will be with you every step of the way as she teaches and provides one-on-one guidance and feedback.

Emphasis will be placed on the skills necessary to complete simple and engaging artworks. You will be encouraged to work with other participants as well as receiving one-on-one instruction. Each participant can expect to make two small abstract paintings and one medium-sized painting.

This course is inspirational, practical, hands-on and of course, fun!

If you can’t make it to my virtual scheduled class, you will love, love, love Play Dates—the 6-week online course I’ve created just for you where you can work at your own pace.
