April 22-May 20, 2013
This class will emphasize the simplicity of how an oil painting works and how to do it. Pure, clean luminous results in your landscapes and still-life are taught step-by-step, from beginning to end with demonstrations and individual instruction. We will discover the way to produce great work, while focusing on the spirit of each painting. Students will develop a personal style and gain inspiration and enthusiasm for future paintings! Mostly, we will have fun!!!
Instructor: Kathy Hinson
Kathy Hinson built a successful career as a graphic artist and photographer from 1970-1992. Included, starting in January of 1983, were 10 years of owning her own business, Hinson Graphics. She shifted her main focus to a career as an oil painter in January 1993. Her representational style of painting invites us to experience the joy she sees in the natural beauty of things most of us take for granted.
“To me, the ability to paint is a gift. I think it is my way of showing what I feel about life, and the joy in living. I hope when people look at my work their spirits are lifted, if only for a moment.” Kathy Hinson
