One thing I have learned is that abstract art does not have to look real. It does not have to look good. It has to be wrong. So, for your first lesson, I want you to draw, paint, or otherwise create art, wrong. Draw with your left hand, or if you are a lefty, use your right. Do other things to spoil your art, like, smearing lines or color. spill color. Figuratively, blow your nose in it!
Now, forgetting it's wrongness, how do you like it?
