Painting Workshop with Kimry Jelen in the Portland Area
TBD in late summer or fall of 2020
What is it?
My art workshops are for people who want to learn to paint or learn more about painting. We dive in and let go of outside distractions. Starting with different exercises about techniques, “seeing,” and color mixing (what I call “warm ups”) creates a focus for learning. Each day we will work on your own project - quite often completing (or at least nearly) a painting by the end! I use acrylic paint for these lessons.
Experience is not a requirement. Participants range from those who’ve never painted before to seasoned pros. It doesn’t matter. I will meet you where you are. There are always things to learn. The beauty of our small group is that I can give everyone the personalized attention they need.
TBD it will be near Portland either in the peaceful countryside or wooded forrest. It depends on the participants and which area (Sherwood, Oregon City or Beaverton) area works best.
What do you need?
-Clothes you don’t mind getting paint on.
-An image or images to paint from, which can be color copies/photos of a critter or object (no people for this class).
-A canvas (or board) for your painting. I will have canvases and some boards for purchase, but if you have a specific size canvas you want to paint on, please bring that. We have an art supply store, so if you want something specific, we can probably find it.
-I will supply everything but the canvas to paint on. That includes all the materials (paints, brushes, everything for the “warm-up” exercises, etc.) You are welcome to bring your own acrylic paints/brushes if you want.
What is included in the price?
Pricing includes the painting workshop, personal instruction (limited to 8 people), materials (except canvas or board), lunch and snacks.
Looking forward to it!
