9:30am  – 5:30pm

One Day Workshop with Award winning artist Kate Carney

Fast Drying Alkyd Oils, Mediums and Glazes
Dramatic color to create vivid but simple paintings
Drama Queen

No medium expresses the language of color like Oils.  Get away from your inhibitions about the challenges of oil painting, and get into pure color.  Learn how to effectively use chemicals to make oil paint behave in ways so far away from what you thought you could do with them.  Grow creatively with confidence as you master skills that may help you unlock your own artistic vision.  Messy, fun and not for the faint of heart – this workshop requires an open mind and a willing heart…and a lot of rags.

Kate is an award winning artist based in Central Florida.  She’s one of those people who worked and worked, and raised a family, and circled the fine art world as an art teacher, graphic artist, mommy, print shop operator, bartender etc for years before casting off and launching a successful career as a painter.   Educated in Europe at University of London’s Chelsea School of Art and Queen’s College, Kate brings a knowledge of the classics to her classes to help support the newer techniques with solid technical knowledge.
