Learn more about Tiffany on her website at:

Tiffany is just a country girl living on the coast of Alabama with her husband, she is happiest with paint on her hands and usually in her hair. She’s a free spirit with a love for exploring and creating messy art. She’s been called a rule breaker and mess maker before who uses art as a stress reliever. I find people are so critical of themselves and their work, life isn’t perfect so why should art be? She tries to empower artist to let go and explore their own messy wild child. When not in her studio you can find her out playing with her dogs and chickens or sitting on the beach. Travel is a huge inspiration for her and she loves to run away on cruises to the Caribbean whenever possible.

A mixed media approach to painting abstract art with Artist and Author of “Abstracts in Acrylic and Ink” with Jodi Ohl

Calling all fellow creatives! Are you ready to dive into a weekend filled with boundless imagination and artistic expression? Join us for an unforgettable journey into the captivating world of abstract art!

Whether yo are a seasoned painter or just starting to explore your artistic side, our weekend-long abstract art class is the perfect opportunity to unleash your creativity and embrace the power of abstraction.

If you are interested in abstract painting but just didn’t know where to start or you have been painting in acrylics and want to learn some fresh techniques, Exploring Abstract Art with Jodi Ohl could just be the workshop for you.

What Students Can Expect to Learn:
During this fast paced and fun filled 2 ½ day workshop, we will experiment with a variety of warm up exercises that will help guide the students towards their main project, a 20×20 abstract painting.

Over the course of this weekend workshop, students can expect to:

  • Explore design principles that will help organize their composition
  • Create value studies to work on contrast in their work
  • Learn how and when to use a variety of mixed media gel and acrylic mediums in their work.
  • Create work that doesn’t have a subject matter but evokes a feeling or experience of the artist’s choice. Use your brush as your voice, your canvas as your stage as you learn to entertain the viewer in the way only YOU can through abstract art.
  • Be guided by the instructor in a gentle and nurturing way.
  • Participate in robust discussions about art and the creative life.
  • Let loose and connect with other like-minded fellow artists!
    Remember, the beauty of abstraction lies in its ability to reflect the essence of who we are. So, let your brush be your voice, and let your imagination soar as you create art that is uniquely, beautifully, and unapologetically YOU.
