Action painting is spontaneously dribbled, splashed or smeared onto the canvas, rather than other art methods which focus on careful application. With roots in the 1950s Abstract Expressionist movement, Action painting is based on a period of artists who valued the physical interaction with materials more so, or on par with, the finished product.
Express yourself through physical motion and create stunning art in an Action Painting workshop. Whip, flick and swish paintbrush against canvas. Experiment with different textures, willow charcoal, sharpies, inks and oil crayons. Broaden your knowledge of the Expressionist movement and the great action painters of the past.
Get in-touch with your emotions and create artwork to the backdrop of moving tunes. Bounce themes off one another: nostalgia, tribal rhythms, blue. Pry between brushes and stamping tools made out of potatoes, onions, sticks, cloth, brushes, eye droppers and spray bottles. Walk away with your very own large painting on loose canvas or box board.
