One great way to strengthen your skills, and hone a consistent voice around a subject is to do a series. In this 8 week class we will explore what it takes to develop a series of work based on your own interests and desires. Examples of this may be: skies, trees, critters, ocean, marsh, vessels, figures, tablescapes, abstracts …. Etc, etc. You will be guided and prompted to dig deep and yet stay within your subject. Any medium that you are familiar with is acceptable, as a matter of fact the series may cross mediums - for example you may enjoy watercolor AND acrylics, or pastels…or mixed media. All levels 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.
