Fun, innovative, and challenging, abstract painting is an exciting way to express yourself. This program begins by teaching the fundamentals of design, composition, and color. Throughout the course, we will examine a history of Abstraction, learn how it started and find out "How, When and Why Paris moved to New York" in the middle of the XX century. Later on, we will examine the paintings of artists like Amy Sillman, Paul Kremer, Philip Guston, Nicole Eisenman, and more. We will work on a variety of fun projects and you will go home with the skills to tackle your own abstract paintings.

In Art School 99 Paint and Ideas Mix Well
COME ON IN!
About the Founder
Alexandra Rozenman's career has taken her from the Soviet underground to a prominent place in the American art world. Born in Moscow, she found her footing alongside now-famous dissident artists before political pressures brought her to the United States as a refugee in the late 1980s. From that point on, her multilayered, often mysterious paintings have only gained momentum, taking her from an MFA at the School of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts to international exhibitions—to a fellowship with the MacDowell Colony, an illustrious group of bohemians whose members have included James Baldwin and Michael Chabon. Rozenman ia a frequent speaker at many art blogs.
Through her personal experiences, having risked everything to follow her own muse, Rozenman knows how important self-expression is to every person. Accordingly at Art School 99 she works to provide students with the technical skills and supportive environment they need to bring their visions to life. Classes might incorporate readings, movies, or collage techniques, and cultivate salon-style inspiration with wine or Russian tea.
