Workshop Fee: $490
Monday, March 6th through Friday, March 10th, 10:00am -4:00pm each day
This is a weeklong workshop for an in depth journey into the process of creating beautifully vivid, abstract compositions in Acrylics. It’s called Abstract Boot camp because you’ll be plunged into quick exercises, maybe outside your comfort zone, intended to get the most out of your creative experience and further develop keen choices that result in stunningly beautiful abstract compositions.
Joe will talk about how he makes intuitive choices, as well as how to develop a theme based thought-out series of compositions. Day one will be the basics. On each of the following days, you’ll work on a different series of theme based studies. This creative journey is sure to aid you in your own personal growth as an artist, but also push you further with results you may not have thought you could achieve.
*There will be a FREE DiGiulio Studio apron for each attendee!
