Hudson River Valley Art Workshops
May 17-23rd, 2020
Join me for True Colors Live! at Hudson River Valley Art Workshops in Greenville, New York.
How long have you been telling yourself you would dedicate time to your art practice? That this is the year you would finally live the creative life you always imagined?
Now is the time to paint! Not tomorrow, not someday...NOW! And I would love to have you come paint with me in a real LIVE workshop. I love sharing with you in an online setting and believe it's a wonderful way to help you grow as an artist, but nothing is as rewarding as when we come together to fill a room with creative energy and laughter and great learning. I believe we grow in the most unexpected and magical ways.
And I would love to share that experience with you at Hudson River Valley Art Workshops May 17-23rd, 2020.
Somewhere between intuition and intention our best work is waiting for us. How can you find the balance of trusting yourself to know how to make your work while still pushing yourself out of your comfort zone in order to grow into the artist that is waiting? You must start by not making art in a bubble. Come together with like-minded artists and an enthusiastic teacher that will help you break through what is known, what is usual or expected to discover new layers of color and expression just waiting to be revealed.
Join Kellee as she shares all the secrets to her luminous layered method of acrylic painting while at the same time digging deep into the creative process to help you discover your own personal artistic style.? Introducing “Modern Landscapes”, an exclusive course designed just for Hudson River Valley Art Workshops. You won’t find this course anywhere else in 2020, so now is you chance to get to the heart of abstract landscape.
