ONLINE WORKSHOP — Abstracting Nature in Your Chosen Medium


Are you interested in exploring the possibilities of abstract art? Does nature inspire your artistic creations?

Delve into the art of abstraction, using nature as your initial subject matter. Learn to move in a new direction, away from representational and toward a more abstract style, thus broadening artistic inner vision and creative vocabulary. Through a series of lessons, participants will choose a subject in nature (flowers, water, sky, etc.) and create an abstract composition while focusing on a single artistic element (color, shape, line, etc.). Participants will begin by taking photographs of the week's topic and then create an abstract work in their chosen medium. The instructor will present a video lecture each week, which will include a demonstration. and photographs of in-process and finished work will be posted by participants. Online discussion, comments, and critiques will be encouraged. Note: participants may use any type of camera they wish, including a film or digital SLR, a point-and-shoot, or a cell phone camera.

Candace Law came to art after she had already earned degrees and worked in other fields. Her path led her to complete a BFA in architectural illustration from Lawrence Technological University in 1998. Her artistic work, however, is not exactly based upon her studies, as she found herself attracted to fine art. Law has exhibited her work at the Flint Institute of Arts, the Scarab Club, the Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center as well as in numerous regional and national shows, both invitational and juried. She has had several solo exhibitions and has won a number of awards, including the award for Distinctive Interpretation of Theme in Still Point Art Gallery's exhibition, The River. Law has participated in “The Living Gallery," an artist-in-residence program at the Annmarie Sculpture Garden & Arts Center in Maryland. She was a juror for the Duke Divinity School's first photographic competition. Along with three other area artists, she recently published Figuratively Speaking, a book of figure drawings. Her work has appeared in Studio Visit magazine and is in a number of private collections, including at Detroit’s Historic Trinity Church. Law is a Detroit native and works full-time from her studio in Berkley, Michigan.
