Painting Abstraction and Scale
During this workshop, in-house tutor Piotr Perski will give a historical background and basic tips to guide students as they create abstract paintings with a focus on scale.
How can a scale of the painting change its perception and why?
Each day starts with a demonstration of a particular painting style, followed by a discussion regarding the thoughts, theories and ideas that are behind its execution.
Each student is then invited to create an artwork based on this foundation.
