Have you always wanted to paint, but not know where to begin? This two hour workshop’s aim is to help you find the personal voice in your work. Through discussion of media, subject, color, composition and symbols we will work towards finding that tone, the singular voice, that your unique perspective and skills bring to your work.
Materials: Bring all your paints and brushes, paper and/or canvas/canvas board. Also bring one or two paintings for discussion. The instructor will provide different painting materials for personal use.
This class is $25 non-members & $20 members. This workshop is limited to 10 students.
Fran Sutherland, a native New Yorker, is a well known painter and teacher in the Hudson Valley. Strongly influenced by Eastern aesthetics, Fran’s creative paintings synthesize both Eastern and Western formats in multi-media works. The chosen media and techniques express personal ideas, which is especially evident in her textural compositions emphasizing oil and acrylic resist techniques.
Many of her works integrate geologic coloration and the play of light and water with local and international sites and architectural structures. Sutherland’s semi-autobiographical paintings continue to be inspired by New York’s Hudson Valley and Arizona’s Santa Rita Mountains.
