Finish It! Kay Brathol-Hostvet
We all have those unfinished
or "just not right" projects--paintings, collage, drawings. Whether you just need the time, new ideas, or fresh
eyes to view your work, Kay will help you generate some completed projects. This loosely-structured workshop will include
beginning and ending group critiques, handouts and "ideas" examples, and uninterrupted work time with as much or
as little personal attention from the instructor as you request. This workshop is for all skill levels and all media.
Sunday, April 28,
10 - 4 $120
Finish It! Supply List
Arranged Compositions from Life Kay Brathol-Hostvet
Using your favorite drawing or painting media, we will explore personal interpretations of still life using plants
and unique objects. Several areas of the studio will be set up, but you may bring your own objects to add to these areas or
set up your own composition. Working from life (not photos) from a planned composition is a great way to strengthen your design,
painting and drawing skills, as well as learning how symbolism and painting style make your work meaningful. If you think
you hate still life-challenge your assumptions and see why you should embrace this timeless genre. This workshop assumes
previous experience in the medium you bring. Saturday, June 22,

styles of application, learning which styles and techniques work best for you. This repeatable workshop is for beginner to
advanced levels. All paper will be provided. Beginners to the soft pastel medium should have reasonably good drawing skills.
