November Art In The Afternoon

Aaron Stephens will showcase his abstract drawing techniques. Often drawings are held in a lower status than abstract painting. By definition, “Abstract art seeks to break away from traditional representation of physical objects. It explores the relationships of forms and colors, whereas more traditional art represents the world in recognizable images.”
