Artist/Activist Lee Krasner (1908-84) was a force in the Abstract Expressionist movement making work that is intense, monumental and groundbreaking.

Your workshop begins with a lecture on Krasner’s recent international exhibitions and continues with two and half hours of drawing and collaging from a model with a group critique at the end. Each of you, no matter what your level of experience, will leave with original artwork and increased skills in abstraction, experimentation and owning your artistic voice.
