Workshop: Abstracting the Figure with Mixed Media & Soft Pastels
An exhilarating 2-day painting workshop at Marin MOCA with instructor Mira M. White
Join Mira for an exhilarating adventure in contemporary figure painting with soft pastels and mixed media.
During this workshop you will initially work from a model. Focusing first on observation, then using your drawings as starting points, work toward interpretive abstraction using multiple processes.
Your final artwork in this 2 day workshop will be a multilayered piece that combines figure drawing from the model, and abstract layers in acrylic, collage and soft pastel.
Recommended for continuing artists and very adventurous beginners who have some experience in figure drawing/painting.
