The first thing I do before the first day of class is send out an enthusiastic email to introduce myself. We then Briefly discuss the learning goals for the course based on the visual literacy, technical, and intellectual competencies the students would like to achieve by the end of a period through the questionnaire. This is ideal for me to design the course or update an existing course for the student's desired outcomes. The customized syllabus and the schedule are completed along with a comprehensive strategy for what will take place during our lesson together. I incorporate technology all the time. I'm also inclusive driven because I believe everyone can learn no matter their capabilities or background, I also engage with my students by catering to their interests, and I embrace my dualities and share them with my students. You will learn all you should know about abstract painting, from choosing the right paint, paper, and brush, varnishing, and creating a collage to creating a complete composition. I will assist you in creating the abstract painting or mixed media art without spending a fortune on tools and materials. Plus you will be confident in understanding not only the technique like how to create texture but also your expression in this art form will take new life. Every class we work on something new; this method of mine is great for all students no matter their level. The topics covered include Primer, Texture, Paints, Brushes, Undercoat, Dark undercoat, Dimensions, Details, Painting process, and more.

Abstract Painting Lessons

Have you always wanted to paint abstract art but felt unsure where to start? The TakeLessons platform provides a large selection of the best abstract painting teachers available today.

Abstract painting has frequently been described as a non-objective way of interpreting reality by using shape, lines, and form to interpret the world in new and expressive ways. It actually runs counter to traditional painting techniques. Rather than reproducing visuals from the outside world, abstract painting often exhibits a degree of independence from what it is trying to represent.

Famous abstract artists include Wassily Kandinsky and Jackson Pollock, both of whom rose to fame in the 20th-century with highly-individual styles.
