Workshop: Abstraction from Within

Abstraction from Within

Come along to explore the world of expressive abstract painting. We will use acrylic paint and experiment with different approaches to get you started on your journey into expressive abstraction.

With gentle guidance you will create your own unique abstract artwork. You will be supported to connect to and discover your own abstract language and build your confidence to express yourself freely. 

Suitable for beginners to advanced – this is your individual journey and each participant will receive individual guidance. I provide an encouraging, kind and supportive envirionment, a safe place to freely explore your own unique visual voice. 

“Gitte is friendly and warm and very knowledgeable.  She created a safe environment to express myself and just go for it.  Clear instructions and guidance” Larissa.

You will learn how to break-in your canvas for a great start to your abstract painting and how to create interest and variation in your composition, texture and brushstrokes. Plenty to explore, learn and have fun with and loads of inspiration to continue your abstract journey with.

I believe the best art comes from within – not planned and measured, but free and spontaneous expression. Yes, techniques and guidelines are great, but I believe that true expression comes from a place where you let go and trust in your own inner visual voice and give it the freedom to express itself. It takes courage as you need to enter the unknown – but it’s truly where the gems lie, come discover it for yourself.
