Painting: Random Acts of Paint

How can you use the circumstances of chance and accidents to create your painting?

The artistic works and automatic drawing techniques of Surrealist artists inspire this engaging program. Students are encouraged to let go of their inhibitions so they can experiment with the concept of chance and accidents and how that can influence their creative process. Your students will explore drawing and painting techniques and gain a deeper understanding of the media.
