Landscape to Abstraction

October 8, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Friday, repeating until October 15, 2021

Come experience the exhilarating creative thought process of studying the lines of the land. We will learn how to decipher the landscape through its language of line and transfer that idea onto canvas. From there, we’ll turn our canvas in different directions, reacting to the new language of line created and carve out abstract paintings. Harnessing the power of brushstroke, we will also focus on creating lush landscapes. This class is open to all levels of students.

 Instructor: Katherine Miller received her BS in Painting from Skidmore College and her MFA in Illustration from the School of Visual Arts Illustration as Visual Essay Program.

Katherine has been exhibiting for many years nationally and internationally. Although trained in Illustration, Katherine has always been a painter, moving between the worlds of representation and abstraction. Working from the the line of the land, building up layers and transparencies, emphasizing the power of brushstrokes her work is about a contained chaos, yet in a structured way – whether it be more representational landscape or a movement towards full abstraction.

After graduate school at the School of Visual Arts in New York City, Katherine spent time at the Anderson Ranch Art Center in Snowmass Village, CO as a Teaching Assistant in drawing and painting, then moved to Florence, Italy where she received a scholarship to teach drawing and painting at Studio Arts College International. Back in the U.S., she teaches privately and at various local art centers and museums.
