artist a day: hilma af klint acrylic painting. friday, march 19th. 11am-12pm.
In this virtual spring break class, young artists will delve into the world of abstract art while discovering the work of Hilma af Klint. We will look at The Ten Largest, a series that is the exploration of the human life cycle, from childhood and youth to adulthood and old age. We'll sketch the shapes we see, learn about her language of colour and then create our own abstract work picking an age young artists use to be or are looking forward to becoming as inspiration.
