Register Now for Abstract Acrylic Painting

There is still time to register for Abstract Acrylic Painting, offered through Community University Studies. This course is offered on three Saturdays from noon to 3:00 p.m. The dates are March 16, April 6, and April 20, 2013.

Immerse yourself in a painterly world of abstraction. Using acrylic, charcoal, and collage you will learn intuitive and expressive mark-making and techniques to allow “happy accidents.” You will practice color mixing and explore the qualities of a good painting. This class is designed for both beginners and advanced painters who wish to loosen up and try new things. Participants are responsible for their own supplies: a list will be given to them after registration, or the participants can choose to use the instructor’s supplies for a fee of $12.

The instructor for the course is Julie Bernstein Engelmann. She holds a Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of California, Los Angeles, and a B.A. from Barnard College in New York City. Her dramatic, abstract paintings in lush color and texture have won many Best of Show awards. Julie is a rostered ArtsPath artist represented by Gallerie Chiz in Pittsburgh and the Artists Hand in Indiana. A solo show of her work is featured at the Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art at Altoona, Januuary 18–April 20, 2013. See Julie Engelmann’s website.
