Let go of the constraints of reality and enter the world of abstract art with current exhibiting Heron Hall artist Angela Zocco Sturr. Whether you are new to the freedom of abstraction or a longtime enthusiast, this workshop may spark a fresh approach to painting a landscape. Working indoors, using a variety of wooden shapes, we will draw an organic vista of interlocking shapes. Transparency, overlapping and textured brushwork using acrylic paint will be explored. A special emphasis will be on mixing and creating harmonious muted colors. This will be a relaxed and supportive approach, open to change and invention at every step of the process.

No previous art experience is necessary. A materials list will be provided upon registration.


Angela Zocco Sturr has taught art and ceramics from her Sebastopol studio for many years. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree and shows her work locally. She has been a longtime docent of the Laguna Foundation’s Learning Laguna program, trained for numerous outdoor education programs with Landpaths and Stewards of the Coast and Redwoods, and completed the UC Naturalists program to become a California Naturalist. Finding long-term stewardship as a participant in the citizen science program Beach Watch, she gathers data monthly on South Salmon Creek Beach. Currently she teaches art and garden at Apple Blossom Elementary School.
