Create dynamic art in this art workshop! Starting a painting with color, texture, gestural marks and layers may seem like “chaos”, but it delivers vital energy that is both fun and intuitive. Great design and composition are the elements that bring “order” to the rich starts and turn them into an attention-getting and expressive finish. Applying strong design and compositional skills are a major focus of this art workshop. Beginner or advanced – you are encouraged to discover and explore your unique expression and personal imagery in realism, abstraction or non-objective. Demonstrations, directed exercises, specific examples and individual attention will introduce new materials, techniques and concepts. Specific lessons on texture building, color concepts, layering, how to do a value study, understanding design principles and elements, and more will be presented. If you’re ready to advance to the next level, Kathleen can help you get there!
