Hi Everyone!

Many of you have taken one of our online classes, “Intro to Abstract Painting” by Karine Swenson.

Well I wanted to let you know that she is teaching an in-person workshop near Santa Fe, NM, on September 15-16, 2018!

Have you wanted to meet Karine in person? (She’s delightful.) Did you need a good reason to visit New Mexico in September? (This is a great one!)

(And if you can’t make the live class, consider the online version, which is now 20% off through August 28th… use the code 2018summer20 at checkout!)

Have a great day, everyone!



Class Description

Intro to Abstract Painting

Intro to Abstract Painting is a fun, fast paced class for those who want a non-threatening introduction to abstract painting. We will explore some of the ideas behind pure abstraction, as well as an introduction to using paint. Exploration and curiosity will be encouraged. The emphasis will be on helping each student discover their own aesthetic and personal way of making art. I will be using oil paint and teaching techniques with oil paint, but acrylic paint can be used, especially for those with sensitivities. My method of using oil paint does not involve heavy use of solvents, so it is a safe painting environment. We will also be drawing and using other media for composition and design. The class will be similar to my online class, but in a more intimate setting and additional tips and ideas.

The class is September 15th and 16th from 10 to 4:30 pm each day. We will break for lunch.

It will be held in Madrid, New Mexico, which is between Albuquerque and Santa Fe.
