Learn simple tools and techniques for abstract painting with Pam Carr!
Pam Carr will be demonstrating the different techniques one can employ using spatulas, palette knives and found tools in order to create an abstract painting. She will discuss the difference between painting wet on wet and wet on dry. The primary focus of my demonstration will be to introduce participants to tools and techniques which they can use to joyfully experiment and thus enrich their own art practice. Pam will be introducing and demonstrating various tools for applying and manipulating acrylic paint, (palette knives, spatulas, a squeegee, pieces of cardboard, wax paper, found tools etc.) as well as using a spray bottle as a tool for creating drips and movement. There will be dragging and scraping, dripping and splashing paint. There will be a discussion on the purpose of freeing oneself to explore and take risks.
Pam Carr is best known for her use of colour and texture in abstract paintings to evoke emotions. She intuitively experiments with abstraction, using acrylic paint and traditional (brushes, palette knives) as well as found objects and materials (cardboard, sand) to manipulate, drag and splatter the paint and create texture and layers in her works. Pam recently exhibited her work at Art Vancouver 2019. Discover Pam’s art and her 2019 exhibitions at her website, www.pamcarr.ca
