The painting was, above all, deeply spiritual for Kandinsky. He sought to convey profound spirituality and the depth of human emotion through a universal visual language of abstract forms and colours that transcended cultural and physical boundaries.
Following a short talk on Kandinsky exploring non-objective, abstract art as the ideal visual mode to express the “inner necessity” of the artist and to convey universal human emotions and ideas, during the practical part you will create your own unique emotional compositions.
The session will be recorded and the link will be emailed to everyone, who have registered for the webinar.
