1st lesson

Embrace Intuitive Mark-Making

One of the key elements of expressive abstract art is embracing intuitive mark-making. Allow your emotions to guide your brush, pencil, or other tools across the canvas. Don't overthink it; instead, trust your instincts and let your inner emotions flow onto the canvas. This freedom can lead to authentic and emotionally charged artwork.

2nd lesson

Experiment with Texture

Texture can add depth and emotional intensity to your abstract art. Experiment with various techniques like impasto (thick, textured layers of paint), palette knife application, or mixed-media elements like collage to create tactile experiences that resonate with the viewer's emotions.

3rd lesson

Explore Gesture Painting

Gesture painting involves using broad, sweeping brushstrokes to convey motion and emotion. Allow your hand and arm movements to express your feelings on the canvas. This technique can evoke a sense of energy, spontaneity, and raw emotion in your artwork.

4th lesson

Work with Layers and Transparency

Layering your artwork with transparent or translucent materials, such as glazes or watercolor washes, can create a sense of depth and complexity. This approach allows you to build up emotions gradually, making your artwork feel multi-dimensional and emotionally charged.

5th lesson

Incorporate Symbolism and Imagery

While abstract art often lacks recognizable imagery, incorporating symbols or shapes that hold personal meaning to you can add depth and emotional resonance to your work. These symbols can act as visual metaphors for your emotions and experiences.

6th lesson

Practice Mindfulness and Emotion Awareness

Before starting a new abstract piece, take a moment to center yourself and connect with your emotions. Mindfulness techniques can help you tap into your inner feelings and translate them into your artwork more authentically.

7th lesson

8th lesson

Primal Painting

Self Portrait

Self Portrait, where we learn to meet ourselves beyond our superficial mask. A unique way of teaching self-portrait, where we bypass our mind and its judgments and discover our own beauty and inner strength. We also explore our roots and learn to say yes to ourselves in a deep way.
