|Color mixing exercises|
|students at work|
The last class was right before Christmas, so I finally got around to posting a few photos from the class. The class was successful for the most part and challenging for me- the students seemed to really enjoy it and created some wonderful work.
Teaching students (adult or children) how to create abstract art can be challenging, especially if the students have never done anything abstract before. However, adding in a few tips on design fundamentals (the Golden Ratio, Fibonacci numbers, etc.) helped a great deal; as well as looking at other artists' work, including Van Gogh. We even did color mixing exercises such as how to make different shades of green with black and yellow! That was a revelation to some of the students.
