HENDERSON, Ky. – Intermediate and advanced artists looking for a new technique or to improve their creative skills may want to consider a workshop led by a professional artist April 25-28 at John James Audubon State Park in Henderson.
Kathie George, an award-winning artist who has been conducting workshops around the world for more than 25 years, will focus on wax and watercolors during the workshop. Participants will work on layering wax and color and try subject matters of their own choosing. The sessions will go from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.
The first day will cover familiarization with technique, the second day students will select their own project; and on the third day students will be able to work on rice paper or silk scarves. The fourth day will cover texture and mixed media.
The fee for the workshop is $400 a person. For information and reservations, contact Kim McGrew at 270-827-1893.
