Create Dynamic Art! Starting a painting with color, texture, gestural marks and layers may seem like “chaos”, but it delivers vital energy that is not only fun and intuitive but necessary. Great design and composition are the elements that bring “order” to a rich start and turn it into an attention-getting and expressive finished painting. Beginner or advanced – you are encouraged to discover and explore your unique expression and personal imagery in realism, abstraction or non-objective. Demonstrations, a 9 page syllabus plus handouts, individual attention and independent work time will enable understanding and application of new information and processes. Specific lessons on texture building, color concepts, layering, how to do a value study, understanding design principles and elements, and more will be presented. “Most of all,” Kathleen says, “I want to help each artist advance to the next level in their work – no matter where they start.” Bring your sense of adventure and enthusiasm for this high-energy, fully-packed workshop.
