This 10-week, bootcamp-style course will re-center you on the fundamentals of producing paintings that not only speak with your particular voice, but are produced in a way that will engage your viewers. Each class will start with exercises that revisit the fundamentals in producing a painting: composition, value, color, line, edges and more. Each class will end with a small study of something from life, where we reinforce the day’s lesson. Every painting, even abstracts, needs a solid knowledge of these ‘bones’, and it is good to reinforce our facility with them. Basic knowledge of your medium required. Kelley will be painting in acrylics but other mediums are welcome. 


Kelley has been painting and making art for 40 years. She has won numerous awards and loves being a painting instructor.  She was a watercolor painter first, then an oil painter and now has found her joy in the acrylic medium.  Until 3 years ago she was strictly a representational painter, but discovered the world of Intuitive Abstracts and is enthusiastically exploring this exciting method every day.  Kelley loves to travel and paint plein air as well, and has painted in Holland, Canada, numerous times in Mexico as well as across the United States. She will be bringing plein air students to San Miguel de Allende, along with her friend and fellow artist Paula Villanova in February on a painting workshop.  An Art History major at Wheaton College, she fell in love with the actual making of art. Living presently in Providence RI, she is an exhibiting member of the Providence Art Club and a devoted member of the North River Arts Society.
