In this course, you will explore and create art that embraces pure aesthetic values informed by formal art elements and design principles. Through the gradual process of abstraction, in which unwanted details and unimportant characteristics of an object are progressively stripped away, you will deliberately apply dot, line, geometric and organic shapes, and texture, to compose paintings defined by specific colour themes.

You will study and draw inspiration from the works of well-known abstract masters, among others, such as Joan Miró, Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, Pablo Picasso and Georgia O'Keeffe.

'Abstract art' - also commonly referred to as "non-objective art", "non-figurative", "non-representational", is an umbrella term for any painting or sculpture which does not portray recognizable objects or scenes. There are varying degrees of abstraction: from semi-abstract to wholly abstract depending on how far detached the artistic expression is from reality. Thus a painting can be appreciated solely for its line, shape, colour and texture alone - it doesn't need to depict a natural object or scene.

This course is excellent for anyone starting their journey as an amateur artist learning to paint abstract paintings, who want to explore ways to be more adventurous and expressive but are not sure where or how to begin.

Seven weekly, on-going sessions, 7pm - 10pm, on Fridays. Total training hours per intake is 21 hours.

We regret there will be no refunds for cancellation of bookings with less than 3 days notice. You may arrange for transfer of your booking slot to another person.

Meditative Fun!

A really lovely workshop conducted in a beautiful studio space. Jeff is a great instructor who allows you to play with your own expressive freedom. At first I felt a bit uptight when we first got going and was holding on to my perfectionist way of thinking. However, I soon got the hang of it and found my groove. Jeff gave lots of encouragement and the whole experience was really enjoyable. Over the past couple of days I keep thinking how much I would like to do it again as it is so mindful!

Fun, relaxing experience

Lesson was conducted in Jeff's new studio, beautiful environment, lots of natural light. Jeff was very helpful and enthusiastic, teaching us about the different methods and materials used in paper marbling. Overall a very fun and satisfying class!

Colourful, Fun, Peaceful Class

Jeff was really considerate and accommodating in letting me alter the date of my class due to a bad flu I had contracted. When I got there, Jeff was really informative about the history and techniques involved in paper marbling, and his studio provided a great environment to work in. Highly recommend.

Drawing fundamentals delivered superbly

What I love about this lesson is that the Trainer is very adaptive to suit the needs of his students. Despite having a few experience in drawing before I came here, he was able to open my mind to new techniques and skills I never had thought before. The lessons are done in a streamlined and efficient manner that students will be able to comprehend every sessions well.

Super fun and cosy experience with great guidance!

I really enjoyed the Lino printing lesson, Jeffrey was a very good teacher in terms of showing me different techniques and helping me grasp the basics, before letting me go off and attempt my own design. His studio is so nice and cosy. I really like that the level of instruction and guidance can be flexible based on your experience with the medium. Most of all, I had lots of fun!
