Join artist Albert Valdez in a painting workshop inspired by the abstract paintings and prints of Ellsworth Kelly. Explore how Kelly developed an overlay of geometric shapes to create form by emphasizing flat, solid colors in space. Through careful looking, students discuss the work of Kelly and his process. They then make their own paintings exploring color and experiment using a variety of paint application.
