During this pre-recorded class, you will learn abstract painting techniques to help you on your way – washes, layers, application with different tools – and create some abstract paintings.

Paint along with your Yvette while she shows you various tools and painting techniques that can be used. Brushes, palette knives, sponges, stippling, feathering, adding texture, washes, layers…Then this first layer of painting is used as a background while you add more layers to complete a finished abstract painting. You will also see more layers added to previous works which you can do as you create more artworks.

The art lesson is a great foundation to learn various techniques and the use of certain tools. This can be brought to any style of painting you wish to create – abstract, semi-abstract, landscape, still life, or figurative. A great lesson to launch from.

This is a relaxed and fun class. Enjoy opening to the naturalness of creativity. If you’re looking for creative things to do at home, then abstract painting is the perfect way to set you on your way.

This class is most suitable for adults but children from seven years upwards are welcome as well. No previous experience required. This will also be beneficial for those with experience.
