Create your own abstract acrylic on canvas following the same steps Constanza uses.

Composition and colour will be the main concerns, applying painting in different layers, in a relaxed supported environment. Meet new friends, enjoy a glass of wine and a few nibbles while you experience a joyous exploration of layers, colours, marks and gestures that celebrate making mistakes.

Constanza, a renowned and successful international artist; originally from Santiago de Chile is passionate about asymmetric shapes and patterns. Freed from seeking perfection, you too can become truly creative and with her guidance achieve glorious methodical disorder. Build your own masterpiece with unintended marks by accepting and working with them through processes and repetition. Nibbles and refreshments supplied.
