January 20, 2025 @ 10:00 am - January 23, 2025 @ 4:00 pm

Monday, January 20 – Thursday, January 23, 2025 from 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM.
4-day workshop fee: $875 / $700 annual donors

Create dynamic art by starting 12 paintings (11×15”) with color, texture, pattern, gestural marks and more, on day one. This may seem like “chaos,” but it delivers vital beginning energy that is intuitive, necessary, and fun!  Strong design and composition are the elements that bring “order” to the rich starts and turn them into attention-getting and expressive finished works.

Beginner or advanced – you are encouraged to discover and explore your unique expression in realism, abstraction, or non-objectivity.  A 9-page syllabus, demonstrations, individual attention, and independent work time will enable understanding and application of new information and processes. Specific lessons on creating new compositions, exciting textures, layering, expressive mark making, color concepts, seeing values (of a color), and more will be presented. 

“Most of all,” Kathleen says, “I want to help each artist advance to the next level in their own work – no matter where they start.”   Bring your sense of adventure and enthusiasm for this fully packed workshop. In this class, we meet challenges, work hard, have fun, and call it ART.

The class will meet at 900 Dunlop Road, Sanibel.

Call the box office to register: 239-395-0900.
Registration Deadline: 01/13/25
