Wildling Museum hosts nature-themed workshop

By Rebecca Rose

On Jan. 5, the Wildling Museum of Art and Nature will host Nature Abstracted, a three-hour workshop for teens and adults.  

The workshop features an explanation and demonstration of how to create abstract acrylic paintings from natural settings. Participants are asked to bring a photograph (by themselves or someone else) taken in nature. The workshop is led by Cynthia Martin, a Santa Barbara-based artist and teacher whose work has been shown throughout California. Martin is a member of the Santa Barbara County Arts committee (CAPP) and the Santa Barbara Studio Artists and the Abstract Art Collective.

The workshop will include a warm-up exercise utilizing examples of abstract art including work by artists from the Abstract Art Collective. Techniques demonstrated will include color mixing, underpainting, and the use of brushes. 

Cost is $65 plus a $10 material fee. The class takes place from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Wildling Museum, 1511 Mission Drive, Solvang. For more information, contact  (805) 688-1082.
