Description

Reserve your seat in this workshop by enrolling here. If the event is full, you will be added to the waitlist.

About the Workshop:

In this workshop participants will recreate "Squares with Concentric Circles (1913)",  Wassily Kandinsky's most recognizable work. Ironically, Kandinsky didn't set out to create a piece of fine art. Instead, this work was a color experiment to explore how different combinations of colors are perceived by our eyes.

We will delve into color theory and mix a wide variety of hues as we create our own version of his famous painting! At the completion of the workshop, participants will leave with a completed 11x14 painting.

She received her BA in Art Education in 2008 from North Carolina Central University with a concentration in Painting and Drawing. The years since have been spent painting and collaging, teaching art classes and camps, managing her own business, and enjoying her love of plants and animals. She is a teaching artist in Durham and has shown work throughout the state and has work in homes across the US.
