Chaos To Order: This is my signature 

workshop!  4 – 5 Days


Starting a painting with color, texture, gestural marks and layers may seem like “chaos”, but it delivers vital energy that is both fun and intuitive. Great design and composition are the elements that bring “order” to the rich start and turn your painting into an attention-getting and expressive finish. Applying strong design and compositional skills are the focus. Beginner or advanced, you are encouraged to discover and explore your unique expression and personal imagery in realism, abstraction or non-objective.

En Plein Air: Fastest growing art genre!

3 – 10 Days


Capture the moment! The sights, sounds and atmosphere of locale are a memory to cherish. Photographing and sketching, or developing a full painting in nature and on location, makes this workshop experience timeless. You will benefit from my expertise, insights and techniques for the best of working “En Plein Air”.   Download a copy of Kathleen’s Plein Air Materials List .

Collage and Color: Fun for all! 3 – 5 Days


Strengthen your artist’s eye for color and composition through the creative exploration of mixed media collage. Work “hands on” with experimental techniques and processes to make your own collage papers. Create your unique expression using personal imagery, collage materials, acrylic mediums, design principles, stamp making, printing and special editing techniques.
