Exploring And Expanding our Visual Vocabularies

This workshop is hosted by Bellissima Art Escapes

Please contact Kathie for registration and more information

I have been a painter for over twenty years. Within that time I have incorporated a variety of materials into my art practice. Some years one technique might dominate another- but I do seem to work best when I have more than one material or texture in dialogue with another on the surfaces I choose to use.

The combination of materials can sometimes be daunting. Together in a relaxed environment we will work from the ground up with a variety of materials that include dry and wet in combination. Marl making- hand made gesso, joint compound, mediums, acrylic paint, oil sticks, cold wax. There is not a formula or a linear procession, but there are a few tricks and guidelines when exploring your own authentic voice in a visual dialogue.

This workshop works best if you have had some experience with materials.Risk taking is encouraged!

Basic materials are provided- you are encouraged to bring favorite tools or papers, canvas or odds and ends you may have considered using in art but never sure just how.  Bring uncompleted works as well. Informal discussions and critiques will concentrate on the practical and outrageous, challenging all our pre-conceived methods of working,  thus expanding the technical and aesthetic considerations that inform an art practice.
