Artist Workshop: Moving Shapes

Ogden Museum of Southern Art
Getting there
925 Camp St, New Orleans, LA

Join us for the second in a series of three workshops incorporating simple mindfulness meditation practices and observation techniques to create contemplative abstract paintings inspired by the styles of Dusti Bongé’s abstract expressionist oeuvre. Looking at the work of Dusti Bongé we can see patterns emerge from the chaos of an abstracted surface. These patterns begin as familiar objects from sailboats to windows to tall cypress swamp trees and move into pure expressions of movement and color. From precision to chaos, learn how to observe and create an abstract painting based on repetition. What shape, symbol, form or landscape is worth repeating in your own abstract painting? $40 for members, $45 for non-members per workshop. $110 for members, $125 for non-members for all three workshops.
