Journey from figuration to abstraction through a sequence of drawing, collage, stenciling, and painting in this afternoon studio workshop taught by contemporary artist Yevgeniya Baras. Following a guided tour and discussion of the exhibition From the Margins: Lee Krasner and Norman Lewis, 1945 – 1952, discover your own method of abstraction to create a painting inspired by the innovative techniques in the work of Krasner and Lewis.
Based in Brooklyn, Baras has taught university-level art classes for the past eight years, and holds BA and MS degrees from the University of Pennsylvania and an MFA in Painting and Drawing from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She has exhibited her work in several New York City galleries and internationally, including exhibitions in Jerusalem. She was named a 2014 recipient of the Rema Hortmann Foundation’s Emerging Artist Prize.
