Cat Bennett and Katie Kendrick, published artists and international workshop leaders, are leading a mixed media workshop incorporating drawing and painting.
Katie and Cat will spend 7 full days with the participants with 2-hour morning and afternoon art sessions as well additional free studio time on 5 days. On the other 2 days we will make planned group excursions and bring back inspiration for our art making. There will be evening studio time for those who wish it.
We will work with a variety of materials including drawing in pencil, vine charcoal, opaque watercolor paint and acrylic. Paintings sessions will focus on opaque watercolor and acrylic. Collage sessions will include painted paper collage and collage with found papers, photographs and materials.
All of the classes are designed for both beginners and those who would like to take their art-making into new areas of exploration. The diverse exercises will offer participants plenty of ideas to bring home for their continuing art practice.
