IN PERSON: In this course, aimed at intermediate level students, we will build skills in abstract painting and collage techniques. Class time will be spent on personal work, critique and descriptions of interesting processes, such as mono printing and altering papers to create unique patterns and backgrounds. Conversations about modern art and artists will be encouraged. Beginning students who are open to abstraction will be comfortable in the course, as the emphasis is on one-on-one interaction with the instructor. Students will bring their own art supplies, though the instructor will also share many unique papers and collage supplies of her own. Students will be challenged and encouraged to find their own unique art style during the course of the workshop. | Active Skill Learning.

Bernice Koff enrolled in a watercolor class nearly 30 years ago. Rediscovering her dormant passion for painting, she enrolled in art school, studied privately, attended workshops and quickly began exhibiting her work. Moving to the Triangle area led to membership in the Orange County Artists Guild and teaching art through the OLLI program and Durham Arts Council.
