We will have 2 cameras in the workshop space.

Louise will have a wireless mic, so livestream viewers shouldn’t miss a thing.

About the workshop: We briefly trace the history of abstraction, beginning with Hilma von Klint, who was the first abstractionist, through Kandinsky, Mondrian, Gorky and the Abstract Expressionist to modern abstraction.

Through drawing experiments, we learn how to find forms and structure for our abstractions. There are several techniques for doing this, which I demonstrate. Participants will experiment and play with these methods over the two days, leading to a firm development of a personal formal vocabulary. 

We also discuss the ways in which we can describe space and movement within the abstraction. Using different techniques such as: overlap, negative space, texture and color, the two days culminate by painting vibrant, exciting abstractions with solid structure and intention.

We’ll start by an introduction and discussion/slides/photos, followed by demonstrating different ways of achieving abstraction: cut and paste, different perspectives and scale, following the line, drawing the negative and working within a structure.

First day - review of abstraction (history and techniques), drawing, experimenting and investigating the possibilities and a quick review of color’s spatial properties

Second day- selection of method/drawing for painting, laying out the painting, setting up to paint and painting

Attendees will learn new ways of seeing elements and objects to apply to their own work.

About Louise Victor:

Louise Victor lives in San Francisco, California, with her husband, the poet, William Cirocco. She is a practicing artist and educator. She has worked in most visual media, including printmaking, photography, installation, encaustic, sculpture and painting.

Louise has had solo shows throughout the US and gives numerous workshops throughout the SFBay Area. Her work has been curated by Peter Gordon, Howard Fox, Renny Pritikin, Judy Chicago and with special recognition from Donald Kuspit. Many private and public art collections include her work. Along with her art education, Louise trained as a pilot. She became one of the first women to fly for a major commercial airline and the second woman in the world to become a Captain on the Boeing 767.

Louise Victor has been working as an artist for over 40 years. She is particularly interested in the how and why of art: what techniques make a particular idea work and why are they successful. Her years of extensive research and study has led to a passion for helping artists expand their creativity and move their work to the next level. Along with private instruction, she holds workshops at the ICB in Sausalito, Arts Benicia and Marin MOCA.


Disclaimer: While we don’t anticipate any disruptions in the stream, this live workshop is dependent on technology and the Internet, there are potential technical difficulties and minor disruptions with the stream that are out of our control. We are offering very reduced pricing to accommodate for any technical difficulties on our end (which we don’t expect). Because this is a digital service that is deeply discounted, it is non-refundable.
