Classes begin with demos, tips and hints followed by enforced painting time. The first two/three classes focus on basic observational skills, seeing value and contrast, selecting objects to paint, and the second two look at using photos as reference, including photos on digital media like cameras, iphones and laptops. We will study drawing skills, composition, value, using a viewfinder, preparatory sketching, mixing color and color theory.  Part of the value of taking this class is in the amazing discussions the incredible students engage in.  We have gentle critiques at the start of each class, looking at your homework and seeing how many ways there are to see a similar object. You bring your adult experience to this class, and you will learn.

You WILL have HOMEWORK, and you will have in-class assignments! The idea is to get you kickstarted into your OWN painting practice!

As an artist and a pet portraitist, Kat has been painting for over twenty years, with a serious concentration on dogs and cats since 2008 when she began work on her “AutobiDOGraphy” series, a continually growing collection of paintings based on her childhood canine companions.
Kat studied painting at the College of St Benedict and St Kate’s, and has spent a week every spring in Grand Marais at the Art Colony painting with Elizabeth Erickson of the Women’s Art Institute. In August of 2011, Kat made the treck to the Peninsula School of Arts to study with Carol Marine, a renowned Daily Painting artist and teacher, and uses some of Carol’s ideas and techniques in her classes.  She teaches at the Grand Marais Art Colony and at Wet Paint in St Paul, MN, as well as at Crossings At Carnegie in Zumbrota, MN. 
Her work has been collected around the globe and she has won awards and honors in a number of exhibitions and continues to show around the Twin Cities area. She also greatly enjoys painting commissioned work, as it provides the exterior enforcement of deadlines and a working relationship with a client that stimulates her latent control freak.

I'm excited for April to get here! Until then I'm enjoying all the cats, and I'm not even a cat person.
