Abstract painting

Abstract Painting Class Begins This Weekend with Karen Ingalls of Calistoga | Lifestyles


Unleash your inner artist with Calistoga’s nine-week Karen Ingalls Abstract Landscape Painting Workshop starting Sunday, January 30.

Do you want to simplify your landscape painting to get to the point? Or use what you see in the landscape as a springboard to a new creation, instead of reproducing what you see more realistically?

In this workshop, you will learn eight different ways to create abstract landscape paintings, starting with the essential element of any landscape painting.

Each workshop day will run from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. The cost of the 9-week course is $347 and includes a bonus follow-up session on April 24. Register at calistogaartcenter.org or call (707) 942-2278.

Video recordings of each class session will also be posted for you to refer to, so you can review anything you want, on a private, password-protected page for the class.

This course is designed for beginners (who have at least some painting experience) and more experienced painters.

One month after the end of the workshop, you can meet for a bonus session, to share what you have done; see the creative directions everyone else is taking; and ask all the questions that have come to you in the meantime.

“Painting in this way strips the image down to its essence. If you usually paint more realistic landscapes, it can change the way you see the world!” said Ingalls.
