MASTERCLASS Abstraction and depth

In this masterclass, British abstract painter and Hangar resident Michael Lawton will explain how painters can play with the depth of a painting, emphasising it or negating it, to give different pictorial effects and master the skill of composition. He will explain how abstract painters use flatness, pictorial depth and the surface of the painting when they are composing their works. 

Michael will begin the session with an introduction to his work, followed by key examples of other painters. The rest of the masterclass will be practical, with participants experimenting with the methods shown to create their own paintings. 

Instruction will be in English, with translation into Spanish.
