“Nature Abstracted,” a workshop with Cynthia Martin, will be offered from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday at The Wildling Museum, 1511-B Mission Drive, Solvang.
The session for adults (teens are also welcome) will start with a photograph of a place in the natural world which the student has brought or chosen. After a few warm-up exercises and descriptions of different styles of abstract art, students will paint an acrylic abstraction of this photo on canvas.
The teacher will demonstrate techniques, such as underpainting, use of brushes and color mixing. Students will be provided with “pallets” and given a choice of acrylic paints, including metallic and glitter. They will also be offered various canvas sizes and formats as well as brushes.
The cost is $65 for tuition and $10 for materials.
