Abstract Art

During the month of March, Priscilla & Tiffany's welcomed Spring with Abstract Art. This type of art is known for expressing feelings, freedom of color and of course its sharp shapes that artists use to their art.

Autumn Rhythm, (Number 30) by Jackson Pollock

Among the topic our students are learning, they are also discovering well-known artist, who made an impact in abstract art. For example Jackson Pollock, and his masterpiece Autumn Rhythm (number 30), 1950. this art piece created by him, represented what a Lyrical Abstraction should look like. Our artists were also introduced to the MOTHER of abstract art Hilma af Klint, us artists call her the MOTHER due to the fact that she used abstract and symbolism from an involvement in spiritism, which later on the years became a trend. Many say Wassily Kandinsky was the FATHER of Abstract Art because he "was the founder of European abstract art." Hilma af Klint broke the academic tradition and BEGAN to paint paintings using bold colors.


The ten largest, No. 7, Adulthood, Group IV, 1907, by Hilma af Klint

Wondering how our studio planned this month's topic? Here it is.


WEEK 1: Moments of Mindfulness

  • During these Moments of Mindfulness our art instructors and students gather in the middle of the studio and set the mood to start a peaceful art mindful moment tighter, using music instruments, relaxing background music and inspirational words from our instructors.


WEEK 2: What is Abstract?

  • Our students got to watch a video that obtained important facts and details about abstract, in this video they learned about artists that made an impact as well. Together they took notes and answered questions asked by their art instructors.


WEEK 3: Moments of Mindfulness

  • As said before, these moments are meant to relax and calm a students mind before they start painting.


WEEK 4: Cubism

  • Art instructors took their time and visually explained how cubism works and how to draw it. One of our instructors took a red cup and broke it into pieces and analyzed how the broken pieces can be put back together in an abstract form using geometric shapes is how cubism is made.
