new online class-the art of abstraction and a giveaway!

Untitled-1

When I got to college and decided to major in art I was more than ready to explore new ways to get creative. I had spent many years feeling pressure to make art that looked pretty and perfect and was anxious to learn different methods and techniques that could set me free and release that "pressure" to be perfect. During my college experience, I found myself gravitating towards projects and classes that had more to do with abstraction and expression and less to do with realism and perfection. And once I got the taste of how drawing and painting felt when it was expressive, emotional, wild, free, and came from your gut- I was hooked! While these methods were just a few (of many) in my arts education, they seemed to be the ones that really stuck and ended up creating a foundation for my creative process and my art.

Untitled-2

These days, while I love making beautiful and refined art and crafts, I also find myself returning to abstraction when I need to just let go and be free. Using methods and techniques that are expressive and abstract has enabled me to understand how to use my experiences and my emotions to make art. This process has helped me loosen up and let go of perfection in all of the art that I make. In my next online class, I am thrilled to share this process with you!

2
The Art of Abstraction will introduce you to the concept of making abstract and expressive art. I will share a variety of methods, techniques and prompts that will inspire you to find your voice and your unique style. I will challenge you to a new way of seeing and teach you fresh ways to make art with all kinds of alternative tools and methods. We will throw images, perfection, pressure and creative trends out the window and instead- make art with our emotions and with our gut! We will channel our individual experiences and STOP over thinking the creative process.

Join me for the Art of Abstraction!

  1. I think I'm kind of orange today -- somewhere between on-fire red and mellow yellow.

    I'm so eager to hear your thoughts, ideas and inspirations about abstract art. Good stuff!

  2. So cool! This looks like it's going to be fun.

    Mood today: gray. I've actually had a headache for two days straight, so I kind of feel like I'm trapped in a sludgy, slow mood. Not very exciting, I know. :)

    ReplyDelete
  3. Wow - this class sounds just wonderful. I'm going to go and register as soon as I finish this comment.
    Let's see - what colour represents my mood today? I think it's a purple day - not sure why, but I ended up doing a painting of little purple houses today. (Definitely not one of my usual colours!)
    Can't wait for the class to start!

    I loved the abstract art lesson in the Create Daily class!

    I'm feeling green today. Unfortunately, being in my first trimester, I've been a bit nauseous for the last few days. But it will be worth it in the end! :)

  9. I'd have to say I'm feeling a little blue, but since it's spring I'm trying to see the lighter side so I'm going with that lovely turquoise blue.

    ReplyDelete

Thanks for the opportunity!!

  44. Alisa, I loved how you introduced this class - resonates deeply within me. What a great too art is when we can use it to express things that sometimes don't have words.

    Thanks for inspiring, Tonia

  58. Today dark orange, almost red, for a fire of emotions stirred up in the last few days, represents my mood.

    Thanks for the wonderful opportunity to win a spot in your class. I certainly need to learn to let go, my art is way too contrived!

    Spring green- not a mood- just the color that surrounds me and astounds me after our colorfilled spring flowers have disappeared.

  63. I studied art in college, until changing my major. I don't regret the decision, because it was what I needed at the time. But over four years have passed since then, and I had virtually stopped doing art completely. It's something I've really missed in my life, but have been too "busy" and just not in a creative mode. Then this last week I discovered your blog, and it has triggered my creative drive and passion for art once again. I just wanted to say thanks for that. I signed up for one of your classes already, and am so looking forward to doing more in the future!

    My mood today is orange, because I'm feeling so motivated and energized to be creative and artistic. A good feeling!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Orange is my mood today. I don't know why, it was the first colour that popped into mind when I saw your question.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I can't wait to get started. I just found your blog last night via pinterest and in awe of your talent. If I were a color today I would be gray. I am feeling the Sunday night dreads. Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete

  92. Mette Skjærbæk11:35 PM

    Today..? Feeling white:) In Denamrk, it's monday morning, which means a new day and a new blank slate. Starting new things in my local town and a strong creative feeling, requires a blank canvas to start from; letting creativity blossom.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Today I had the most wonderful painting experience. I ALMOST threw out the painting SEVERAL times - no exagg! It just was a bomb, over and over again. But like life, the layers did something magical, and delivered a background so wonderful, I am not at all sure how to proceed. I may not. But the color it left me was a deep turquoise with a rustic accent running through. All the best to you and the class ahead.

    ReplyDelete
  94. I'm turquoise today, ready for the new week ahead.

    ReplyDelete
  95. I've just got home from the first day of work after daylight savings ended, so my colour is twilight blue.

  96. Although I am feeling quite sick today, as soon as I read about your give away my day turned turqoise. The kind of caribian turqoise...

    ReplyDelete
  97. This class seems so much fun! (Although to be honest, all the classes of yours that I've taken so far have been fab!)I'd love to win a spot. Today I feel hot pink, happy and energetic, which is kind of strange for a Monday morning...

    ReplyDelete
  98. This class sounds fabulous! I could really use some techniques for letting go of the idea of perfection.

    Right now I'm feeling sluggish, muddy brown. Too sleepy but waiting for an important phone call... Thankfully, tomorrow there'll be another chance to find a more cheerful color to feel!

    ReplyDelete
  99. your new onlne class sounds very interesting and i'd love to try it! i'm feeling kind of a sea-foam green today.. i made easter eggs earlier and it's the wash i kept gravitating towards. it reminds me of the back side of a wave, with the shells & sand mixed in and the foam on top. :)

    ReplyDelete
  100. This class sounds right up my alley, especially in my recent mood. I want to go further, know what I mean? I feel like this class would help. (I just found out about your blog 2 weeks ago, following a post by Julie Fei-Fan Balzer).

    My day has two colors : red for passion and sparks, making art with my kids, taking pictures and making a layout... and black for the practical side of my mind, cooking and getting ready for work; figuring how to fit in what I need to get done, so I have more time for the red side of me :)

    ReplyDelete
  101. I feel yellow as I am dizzy with delight over your new class!

  102. Brown...I've just eaten "nutella" :)- Graziana

  113. My colour is a depressing grey - not a strong ash grey more of a yucky slate grey. After spending all weekend in the cancer ward at hospital this is what a feel like, tired and slate grey!

    Today purple is my color. Not just purple, but the whole palette of purples, the ones we see today in the flowers contrasting with the fresh green of new leaves...

    I've always been attracted to purple, don't know why, probaly because it can be a "cold" and a "warm" color at the same time, and anywhere in between...

    Would love to win your abstract class, you hit on that subject in the create daily class and foudn it very inspiring...

    I've already typed this message but something went wrong when I "sent" it. Sorry if it appears twice...

    Have a beautiful fun filled sunny day with Lucy and your art (and all your online students throughout the world)

    I'm feeling ice-blue today. I'm bit sad because my son left the nest and the weather fits my mood, cold, icy and stormy. But now i have seen your class the ice in the blue is melting ...

  146. Blue, but not because I'm feeling sad. I've never really thought of blue as a melancholy color... For me blue represents happiness - like the bright, beautiful sky that is currently outside my window :)

    Thank you for the opportunity to win a spot - I could definitely use a refresher in loosening up and letting go!

  155. I'm feeling bright pink today. First day back to school (art teacher) after spring break and beautiful flowers blooming in the yard. Excited for what the spring/summer will bring and excited to have this summer to go through a few of your classes and regenerate after my first year :)

  158. Today my color would be grey...I have a slight headache and the sun is not out so a dreary color represents my mood.

    ReplyDelete
  159. I spend a lot of time at the MOMA in NYC but seldom understand the abstract art or what makes it museum-worthy. I'd love to learn more about this topic.

  160. today I fell.....red!!

    ReplyDelete
  161. Today I am kind of a pale blue-grey. While the sun is out and spring is on its way (we had absolutely gorgeous weather this past week), today a storm is rolling in and bringing a lot of wind with it.

    ReplyDelete
  162. I need to learn the language of colors! I would love for the chance to take this class and be able to express my emotions in a visual way. Thanks for the opportunity to win a spot! If I had to guess, I'd guess today was a green day for me, jealous of all these comments with such good answers!!

    ReplyDelete
  163. It's wonderful to hear about your art education and how you came to love abstraction. I am still in the learning stages, so I have been focusing on making my images look real. But we just finished a big abstract project in my color theory class, and now I have a new appreciation and a new love.

    Today my mood is represented by green because of all the wonderful things coming back to life in our gardens, and because I'm feeling hopeful.

    ReplyDelete
  164. Definately blue today. I little sad blue mixed with a little happy blue.

    ReplyDelete
  165. Today I'm fushia, with a sprinkling of lime, lavender and tangerine!! It's a day off and I'm ready to create!! I enjoyed sktchbook delight so much and am really happy for the chance to win a scholaship to this class. It looks so freeing!! Would LOVE to win!!

  166. Hello Alisa, I love your blog, and has brought back the love that I have of art and being creative, to put my feelings in art, where I am who I am. I am feeling the color red today. I found a cardinal singing outside of my house today, and made me feel happy and happy is what I feel. :)

    ReplyDelete
  167. I have always wanted to do an online art class! I feel "stuck" in my artwork and definitely over think things!

    The color that represents my mood today is blue. There is some stressful stuff going on, but there's hope!

  168. ROJO Red! powerful, energy, passion, love

    ReplyDelete
  169. Blue...a blue norther blew through last night interrupting my thoughts and making me understand why "they" call a storm blue. Orange is starting to peek through just a wee bit, a lucky and auspicious color.

    ReplyDelete
  170. I feel definitely turquoise today with some pink spots....

  171. Hi, Alisa,

    Have a great day!

  172. Oh wow! I've always wanted to learn how to make abstract art that would actually *look* good. ha ha ha. Thanks for the giveaway, Alisa.

  175. I'm feeling YELLOW today, probably because the sun has returned after three days of cloudy/misty weather.

  176. Enjoying the sketching class right now, and already signed up for watercolor. This one would be a great next step!
    I am purple today... for lots of reasons!
    Thanks, Alisa!

  177. Whee! Another class to explore--can't wait. I've been feeling green recently--the desert in AZ is starting to bloom and I'm heading back to MI soon where the leaves are already opening. I love spring!

    ReplyDelete
  178. I would usually say amethyst (my favorite) but today is a bright yellowy orange, happy color!! As bright as the sun, cheerful and glorious!

    ReplyDelete

    Continued Success!

  180. I'm feeling yellow today - mellow yellow.

    ReplyDelete
  181. Oh, what a great gift you're offering us- once again!

    My mood is green- in all shades: The dark green of my study, which reminds me of a tranquil forrest, the soft green of my favourite sweat-pants, the bright and gentle green, which starts to push up through the soil as the flowers on my balcony grows and even the bright neon green of the post it stickers and highlighter ink in my term paper and the associated books and essays...

    love, yash

  182. I caught the virus my kids have, and I am definitely a bilious green today. :(

    ReplyDelete
  183. I'm entering this Mega Lottery here because your class sounds just the ticket to jump start my new art exploration (at age 65, Ha! It's never too late.) Today, I'm green, not for metaphorical reasons, but because I'm jealous of fabulous young artists who started early and had the courage to claim their creativity.

    ReplyDelete
  184. Today I'm pale, pale pink -- so pale there might not be any color there at all but it IS there and it's getting brighter -- gee, am I really talking about color???

  187. Today I'm feeling Robin's Egg Blue. I'm not sad or anything, actually quite content at this very moment. Spring has sprung and I've been listening to the birds chirping all morning. I love your classes and would love to win this one. Thank you for the opportunity!

    ReplyDelete
  188. Today I summon electric blue for the energy to deal with the uncertainities and challenges in my world right now, and a sense of calm and knowing that a brighter world is closer than I see. I will wear blue today to and face my fears with determination and optimism about my future. Thanks for raising the question and reminding me of the power and healing properties colors hold for each of us!

    ReplyDelete
  189. Good morning Alisa,
    I am feeling a little acid green this a.m.. I think that an abstract class would be would definitely shift some energy (and change some perspective.)Hoping your day is lovely.

  190. Thank you for this opportunity! I am feeling green today, a bright grassy green, refreshed and rejuvenated and balanced.

    Would love to win the class - it sounds totally awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  197. I am all gray pinstripes today - not that I wear gray pinstripes, but I am feeling cold, hard and guarded today.

    I'd love a free class to let the other side of my personality have some breathing room!

    If my feelings could be represented in a colour today, I would be a deep blue (I found out a few weeks ago that I was having a miscarriage... and over time I felt better - but this past weekend I found I am still pregnant with a non-viable pregnancy)

    Hopefully later, I will be orange :) I havea few girlfriend coming over for dinner tonight,a nd we are having tacos. We always have lots of fun when we get together, I am in need of a girls night

    ReplyDelete
  199. Can rainbow be a color? Not because I'm overly moody today, but just because rainbows are beautiful and I am just feeling inspired by all the beauty around me today.
