Learn to create abstract art

Local artist Silvia Cabrera Williams will lead a teaching session on from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 6, at Leapin’ Frog Gallery in Waynesville’s Historic Frog Level.

Some basic instruction about paints, values, shapes and color placement will be given as well as how to do transfers onto paper or canvas.  Rubbing alcohol, cheesecloth and aluminum foil will also be used in the creation of a piece of abstract art.

Williams has been an artist for many years and loves the experimentation process.  Her work is currently on exhibit at Gallery 86 on Main Street, Waynesville, and Gallery 262 in Frog Level.  

Cost for the workshop is $50. Call 828.456.8441 to register and get a supply list.
