Abstract Exploration with Acrylics
Past and present techniques collide as artists explore the realms of realism and abstraction. From Super-Realism to Non-Objective, our subject matter will be as vast as the artist’s ambitions, and take us to a world of limitless possibilities. Creativity, Exploration, and a fun and friendly environment awaits where the typical can become the extraordinary with the flip of a brush.
