Introduction to Abstract Painting – An Exercise in Contrast with Samantha Condon

    In this 2.5-hour workshop, we will learn how to create an abstract art piece, using unique mark making tools, layers of collage and paint.  We will begin playing with concepts of saturation, contrast, texture, value and emotion, as we move through an exercise in how to loosen up and create art without judgment.  

    We will discover what is pleasing to our eye, and take healthy risks to showcase our creative choices in our final piece, which will be mounted on a wood panel and varnished for pick up at Elsie Kaye Glassworks.  

    Please come ready to get messy, and bring your true creative self.

    $75 per person  ($15 of this cost is for supply fees)

    A limit of 4 spaces will allow for social distancing in our well-ventilated studio.

    This will be a beginner - level class; no experience necessary.  


    Taught by Samantha Condon of Kindful Studios.  Samantha is a self-taught intuitive mixed media artist living in Westborough. Her work incorporates unexpected mark making tools, natural elements, and vintage imagery to create custom collage portraits, botanical prints and abstract pieces.

    Be Bold!

    At the beginning of this liberating workshop, Sam, our instructor, encouraged us to be bold—bold with colors, textures, shapes, and our ideas. It worked! Her supportive words and praise helped me create four beautiful abstract pieces that I am proud of. In fact, I am getting them all mounted so that I can proudly hang them in my new kitchen eating area. Thank you Sam for challenging me to be bold and brave!
