In conjunction with a week-long workshop, Steven Aimone will present an introduction to the language of non-objective painting and drawing. His PowerPoint presentation Sunday, June 12 from 6 to 7 p.m. will be followed by a Q&A sessions and a book signing at Lincoln Street Center for Arts and Education, 24 Lincoln St.

Audiences will come away with a deeper understanding and appreciation for abstract art; and artists will gain a broader understanding of the potential of non-objective composition, a universal language that underlies all painting, drawing and design. Aimone explains in accessible terms that painting and drawing can speak of realities that are internal and/or transcendent — that this visual language can lend form to the formless.

Aimone is an author, artist and nationally recognized fine arts instructor who has taught to a variety of audiences. His illustrated talk includes images of work, and quotes by, master artists of the 20th and 21st centuries. He has presented this lecture at British Columbia’s Vancouver Island Art Workshops, Florida’s Atlantic Center for the Arts, his own Aimone Studio on Monhegan and for the Society of American Mosaic Artists in Mesa, Ariz., among other venues.

Aimone is the author of “Expressive Drawing: A Practical Guide to Freeing the Artist Within” and “DESIGN! A Lively Guide to Design Basics for Artists and Craftspeople.” He will do another workshop at Lincoln Street Center in the fall; visit for details.

There is no fee to attend the talk, but donations of $5 to benefit Lincoln Street Center will be appreciated.
