This class has been a fan favorite since I began teaching it, and remains one of my more popular classes! This is the class that will get you to hang your work in your home or office proudly. You’ll get instruction on how to build a successful composition, art concepts, some tried and true color theory and paint blending basics, and paint applications. We will talk about adding media, as well as utilize both liquid paints and heavy body paints. 
Most of all, you will learn what works, and create your own, while quieting your mind and letting your subconscious guide your choices. I’m there to coax you along, give you color mixing and compositional advice, some hands on assistance, and show you examples that will inspire your work.

Painting Abstracts doesn’t require any special practice or prior experience, and the benefits of letting your mind create in this way are bountiful. Abstract art challenges our brains to create our own interpretations, thereby stimulating the higher-level areas of the brain responsible for creativity and imagination.
Specifically, it can-
  • teach us to look at art—and, in a sense, at the world—in a new way. 
  • free our brain from the dominance of reality, to create imaginative and creative responses to everyday problems.
  • allow you to achieve ‘flow’, that elusive meditative state that reduces stress, and temporarily pushes aside all of your worries!

You may bring any canvas size of your choosing to this class, but please keep it under 48×48 inches maximum.

This class is BYOB, and drinking, (or eating, if you’d like to bring snacks), are always options!

I am dedicated to offering stress free, stress reducing art classes that are fun, no matter what your art experience may be!  

While you go at your own rate in all my classes, this tends to be an energetic, high intensity class. 

*As with all Ruthi Makes classes, no previous experience in art or special talents are necessary!*
