  • Using the exciting medium of watercolor, students will learn about creating a painting from
    sketch to a colorful finished piece. The focus of the workshop will be to enjoy learning
    watercolor techniques as well as composition, values and color of our subjects.
    Class begins with a discussion and demonstration, then working together, step by step, we get
    right to painting. Students will get individual feedback throughout the two days of painting. We
    will discuss many aspects of creative painting techniques and process with emphasis on
    enjoying the flow of water and paint on paper. Let’s have fun with the magic of watercolors!
    Kathleen is an award-winning artist with a passion for watercolor painting! Painting in the
    studio as well as Plein Air, she immerses herself in the fluidity and unpredictable qualities of
    watercolor paint to capture the brilliant light and colors of nature that are before her. The
    magic of layering translucent paint allows the light to shine from the surface, through the
    colors, to us as observers.
    Kathleen paints in a realistic painterly style, bringing the effect of changing light and color that
    describes the atmosphere, context and shape of the scene to the paper. She is an experienced
    instructor, exhibiting in many juried shows and galleries as well as participates around the
    country in Invitational plein air events.
    Kathleen grew up in both Montreal and California, and for over 27 years has enjoyed the
    endless subjects that living in Boulder, Colorado, offers. Kathleen was formally trained at the
    Art Institute of Boston and at the Massachusetts College of Art, graduating from both schools
    with a BFA.
