Happy Valentines Day!
Tuesday, February 16, 7:00pm TAF: Sara Vanderkleed will be our guest artist/speaker. Sara is a member of Artists Own, an independent artist and art teacher, specializing in abstract art. Last fall Sara was the artist in residence at
Breckinridge, Colorado. She gave a workshop there on designing an abstract painting. (http://www.breckcreate.org/
event/designing-an-abstract- painting-with-sara- vanderkleed/)
The explanation of that workshop from the website: Learning to view abstract art is similar to hearing a new language. At first your eyes don’t know what you’re seeing just as your ears don’t know what to hear when hearing a new language. Learning to paint abstractly can be just as challenging. We’ll look at two aspects of abstract painting; what inspires you and how to interpret it. We’ll consider principles of design and trusting your intuition.
