About the Event

Kathleen’s “Creative Abstraction” workshops challenge the artist to loosely interpret every subject.  It is her painting and design class for artists who would like to “loosen up” and escape the confines of detailed painting and drawing by working with artist oil paints mixed with cold wax medium.  The focus of instruction will be “deconstructing” shapes and colors to create expressive “abstracted” paintings with emphasis on color variations in the landscape.  All levels are welcome.

artist grade tube oil paints in your favorite colors plus black and white

Masterson oil palette or freezer paper for oil palette
