"Contemporary Abstract Art: Letting Loose" (October 31, 2023) with Pat McGreevey


with Art League Featured Artist &
Instructor Pat McGreevey

Tuesday (10am to 4pm)
October 31, 2023

Art League Academy
(106 Cordillo Parkway, Hilton Head Island, SC)


Embrace experimentation! Let go and get in the zone! This workshop was created to help aspiring artists become more confident, allowing the beginner abstract painter to take chances and have fun! Abstract painting is experimenting with paint and techniques which is vital to the creative process, so enjoying the act of painting is just as important as the outcome.  

Students will experiment and create several pieces throughout the workshop using acrylic paints and mediums on paper and canvas. What's important is, not to go home with a masterpiece but to learn to let your natural instincts take over with no fear of making a mistake. After all it's only paint so you can always change it if you don't like it! So, why not get started now?

NOTE: Students should bring $20 cash to pay the instructor who will provide all materials needed, however, students are encouraged to bring supplemental materials they're interested in experimenting with.

This class was designed for beginner and low-intermediate level students.

Instructor Bio:

PATRICIA L. "PAT" MCGREEVEY is a multi-media artist. Her artistic journey began as a young High School art student having won a prestigious Scholastic Key Award for her early work in macrame, clay and rug design. As current her focus is oriented toward richly diverse paint mixed-media employing acrylic, ink, cold wax and oil. Her art is characterized by vibrant color combinations, contrasting shapes, deep dimension and spans the full spectrum from traditional to the abstract.

Pat enjoys working intuitively employing brush, scraper, palette knife, her hands and anything else she can think of using. She is inspired by the creative process and the idea of creating something from nothing. "I want to create art that people love. Art that is thought provoking and evokes emotions. Art moves us in multiple directions, having it around us continually generates those emotions."

Pat is forever grateful, having been blessed with the encouraging and never ending support from family, friends and private collectors. She and her husband live on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. You'll find her most days in her studio unless she's on a pickleball court.
