About the Event

Donna Downey will be traveling to Albuquerque for this wonderful 2-day workshop.


The Abstract Artist, a Mixed Media 2-Day workshop.

Mixed-Media art is exciting!  The opportunity to stretch yourself, each layer infusing more depth and personality as you work, leading you down the path of making unique and expressive artwork that resonates.

We will create artwork that had something to say, whether it is in the literal sense of using words or simply knowing how to place color and textures so that your work lures the viewer in to seek and enjoy more.  We will focus on abstracting the human figure and will use several different mediums to create a powerful, expressive composition that is deeply personal.  Art speaks volumes and I want to give you the confidence that allows you to continue to create in your own unique voice.

The course will focus on:

  • Using graphite to break the stigma od the blank paper
  • Building a background be layering acrylics
  • Developing a figure(s) that helps express your concept
  • Exploring paint applications that change the expressiveness of your work
  • Shading and color development for the building value
  • Adding stencils for interesting visual textures and movement
  • Changing media to build strong contrast
  • Embracing the art of messy handwriting as a visual element

2-Day Workshop cost $395.00

A detailed supply list will be emailed out to students when scheduled.
