About This Class

Abstract Art with a Twist: Craft in the Style of Klimt

Learn to paint in the style of the modern twentieth century masters.  


Class Description

Painting abstract art is all about letting go and having fun.  Learn how to plan bold designs in glittering colors like Gustav Klimt, the beloved painter of "The Kiss" and the portrait of Adele Bloch Bauer (from the movie "Woman in Gold").  

We will have fun while immersing ourselves in a craft activity that ignites our imaginations and pushes the boundaries of our creativity.  No prior painting experience is needed - all levels are welcome.
