Kathleen Conover (Session Two – All Levels)

Create Dynamic Art!  Starting a painting with color, texture, gestural marks and layers may seem like “chaos”, but it delivers vital beginning 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. Beginner or advanced – you are encouraged to discover and explore your unique expression and personal imagery in realism, abstraction or non-objective work.  In this class we set goals, meet challenges, have fun, and call it ART!
