Abstract Painting
with Renee Blank
Abstract art is art that does not attempt to represent an accurate depiction of a visual reality but instead use shapes, colours, forms and gestural marks to achieve its effect.
- Wassily Kandinsky.

Learn to work with your medium, either acrylics or watercolors (oils if you are experienced), and paint with expression and skill. You can work on small canvases or large (large is more fun).

Renee will guide you through the process and then let you fly. She will give you exercises to help open up the imagination and creative process of painting, the exercises will be with acrylic and watercolor on paper.

All artists hammer in the skills - but it is the art of loosening up and really working with your medium and color palette that allows you to begin to bring emotion and depth to your painting ...and it is fun!

Bring a friend and join the group Thursday, starting September 15th at 11:30 to 1:30.

Supplies: Bring your own canvas, brushes and paint medium. Thursday

After School Art
with Renee Blank

Renee Blank has been a NY public school art teacher for over 30 years, working with students from grades K - 12. Recently retired, she is excited to continue to her love of teaching, and share her experience with the EEA Community.

Renee brings creativity and discovery to this after-school art class. Children work on multi-media projects, concentrating on one project per class. The students will be introduced to artists and their mediums and will be encouraged to create their own masterpieces.

Renee is also an artist herself, her art shows in multiple galleries on Long Island.

Creativity involves critical thinking, planning, and focusing your attention. Children learn through this process as different parts of the brain jump into action. They might discover something they never knew before, learn how to solve a problem, or figure out a new way to look at or do something!

Abstract Painting
with Renee Blank
Abstract art is art that does not attempt to represent an accurate depiction of a visual reality but instead use shapes, colours, forms and gestural marks to achieve its effect.
- Wassily Kandinsky.

Learn to work with your medium, either acrylics or watercolors (oils if you are experienced), and paint with expression and skill. You can work on small canvases or large (large is more fun).

Renee will guide you through the process and then let you fly. She will give you exercises to help open up the imagination and creative process of painting, the exercises will be with acrylic and watercolor on paper.

All artists hammer in the skills - but it is the art of loosening up and really working with your medium and color palette that allows you to begin to bring emotion and depth to your painting ...and it is fun!

Bring a friend and join the group Thursday, starting September 15th at 11:30 to 1:30.

Supplies: Bring your own canvas, brushes and paint medium. Thursday

After School Art
with Renee Blank

Renee Blank has been a NY public school art teacher for over 30 years, working with students from grades K - 12. Recently retired, she is excited to continue to her love of teaching, and share her experience with the EEA Community.

Renee brings creativity and discovery to this after-school art class. Children work on multi-media projects, concentrating on one project per class. The students will be introduced to artists and their mediums and will be encouraged to create their own masterpieces.

Renee is also an artist herself, her art shows in multiple galleries on Long Island.

Creativity involves critical thinking, planning, and focusing your attention. Children learn through this process as different parts of the brain jump into action. They might discover something they never knew before, learn how to solve a problem, or figure out a new way to look at or do something!
