Adult Workshop: Painting Our Contemporary Landscape with Kim Cadmus Owens

Oil and Cotton Creative Exchange

Tuesdays, March 5-April 9 (6 week session)
Location: 817 W. Davis #110 Street
Instructor: Kim Cadmus Owens
# of Students: 4 - 12

Let’s look at where we live! This class will introduce landscape painting and focus on creating depth, space, and place. We will use techniques and learn tricks to make paintings that reflect intersections of the human-made and the natural, geometric and organic, complex and simple, serious and fun. Kim will provide source imagery and inspiration but participants are encouraged to bring their own printed or on a digital device. We’ll make multiple paintings and leave with the inspiration and skills to continue developing. All materials will be provided but feel free to bring supplies you may already have and want to learn more about.

Participants will learn:

  • Ways to start a painting

  • Atmospheric and linear perspective

  • Painting techniques utilizing artist grade acrylics to create illusions of depth, create texture and rich surfaces, and incorporate other media

  • Masking and stenciling

  • Mark making with a variety of brushes and alternative painting tools

  • Supports and their preparation

  • Safe and responsible handling of materials

Kim Cadmus Owens exhibits her work nationally and is Professor of Art in Painting at the University of Dallas in Irving. She is represented in Dallas by Holly Johnson Gallery. For more information visit her website at kimcadmusowens.com
