Abstract Painting Workshop

@thefivevillageshall Backford, Chester, CH1 6NT
Wednesday 12th June
£59pp inc all materials, canvas, hot drinks, snacks and tuition

Now is your chance to learn abstract painting,  in a step by step, easy to follow workshop, which is suitable for beginners – no experience necessary! No drawing skills required either!

The workshop is an exploration of abstract art:

  • the techniques, the characteristics and the essence of creating fluidly.
  • We’ll dive into a little history of abstraction, and then move into
  • little exercises understanding composition, colour theory, and the ‘balance’ of a painting.
  • We will work up to producing our own large abstract canvas.

It’s also a great opportunity to open up to a more playful and intuitive style of art work and get to grips with a process that you can take home with you and continue to explore. 

This workshop will give you the tools and the understanding to your own intuitive mark making and help you find a new opening to express through painting.

*******You will get to take home your very own abstract painted canvas********

Spaces strictly limited.

About the artist…

From his studio in Chester, Jack is creating paintings which explore the mysterious world of abstraction. Working predominantly with oils and wax he aims to create a world where turbulent colour and energetic form live simultaneously with calmness and balance, chaos and cohesion.

“My paintings portray a raw and tactile approach of scraping, scratching, layering, thinning, all the elements constantly fighting for space. I work in a very free fluid movement, creating impulsive symbols and gestural marks which are subliminally placed”

He charges the surface with paint that informs a world bursting at the seams, using the canvas as an arena in which to act and express experience rather than to simply reproduce a picture.

 “My work, much like music, is a constantly evolving dialogue, trying to speak for itself and I’m trying to catch up. It’s a language I create but don’t necessarily understand. I love to play in that mystery” – Jack Few

Jack studied Fine Art and English Literature at the University of Chester and is now represented in a number of galleries across the country. He also teaches painting workshops and provides private sessions.
