    Subject this week:  #3 Abstraction: What to leave out?
    For this class you don’t need to have taken the “Introduction to Gestalt Theory” but we’re going to explore one of the concepts discussed: Closure.  The brain is good at filling in gaps to create a whole.  Interesting abstraction often leaves a lot for the viewer to interpret, but how do you know what to leave out?  In this class we will explore this idea.

    For this class we’re going to take a lot of the concepts we’ve covered over the past few weeks and we’re going to scale them up and apply them to a big canvas.  Scaling up often involves changing your tools and the way you apply your materials to canvas.  Plan to be loose and use a big brush.  Join us for this fun class!
