INTRODUCTION TO ABSTRACT PAINTING - Watercolors or Acrylics with Connie Canby  

As abstract artists we are often misunderstood because many of our

viewers want things to look familiar and to represent scenes or objects.

In fact, abstract paintings do represent feelings, events, pictures, people,

places, things and experiences.  As artists we fragment and enlarge part

or some or all of these and translate them into designs relying on color,

shapes, textures and skills. 


Thru this series of painting experiments you may experience a new, freer,

more expressive artist, and your already “famous art” may have a renewed,

enthusiastic, and vibrant feel and look.


Our skill level in copying a scene, a photo, (even your own) may have

reached a very high level but, if we are not able to express what we want

or mean, we could just be making more pretty pictures and not challenging

our true potential. Let’s discover this new or renewed relationship with our

medium and run with it.  I guarantee fun, laughter, and “wow” moments.

Due to the COV-19 virus face masks must be worn at all times.  

The Workshop will be in the main gallery with tables spaced

6-feet apart.  Bring your own lunch.
