Bleach Painting is a technique that enables an artist to paint easily with materials that can be found in their own home. The goal of this workshop is to create abstract expressions in a simple and quick way by using bleach. Bleach is a "negative" approach, wherein the medium erases the color of canvas and cloth. This can be mixed with the "positive" technique of painting and collage, creating a unique approach to painting. Students will create many small-scale works in this workshop so that they can express themselves through a multitude of ideas.
