What you'll do

I will conduct this mixed media (oil paint and collage) portrait painting workshop in my studio. Weather permitting, it would be held in my old post and beam barn. You will be introduced to the materials and the step by step, fool proof process. You will have freedom of your choice of collage paper, but here too there will be certain guidelines. The collage pieces are designed using a template. Once the collage pieces are glued in place, the oil paint is then applied. Because each individual has liberty to choose their own paper, and the process of cutting, tearing and pasting is unique to each individual, everyone goes home with a unique and completed 5x7 inch mixed media portrait.

I received my fine art degree at the University of NH and worked as a graphic designer for a number of years.
I started showing my mixed media figure paintings in 2011 in the northeast and 2012 on west coast Florida. I received awards for some of the work, and was an artist featured to represent one of the top ranking Fine Art and Design Shows in the New York Metropolitan area. I paint and teach in my studio. My paintings are for sale in my barn gallery and in a local down town gallery in beautiful midcoast Maine.

Where you'll be

We will be in my personal art studio which is located at my house. I have an attached barn which is open to the public in the warmer months and off the barn is a studio room if the weather is inclement.

The whole experience was fabulous . I enjoyed being able to wander around Katie’s studio asking questions and nothing was too much trouble . Katie had everything so very well organised so that we could get on with the painting and complete a piece in the afternoon . We were thrilled with what we achieved .

Eine schöner und lehrreicher Workshop für alle, die entweder schon mit Collagen arbeiten oder noch nie gemalt haben und herausfinden wollen, welche Möglichkeiten sich bieten. Der Workshop findet im Atelier der Künstlerin statt und man hat damit auch Gelegenheit, ihre eigenen Werke zu sehen. Katie war offen für alle Fragen, die ich zum Thema Arbeiten mit verschiedenen Materialien und Farben hatte. Sehr sehr empfehlenswert!

This is Lisa, John’s wife, and I attended Katie’s art class. It was excellent and I learned a lot about oil painting and collage. I am now inspired and motivated to paint more and I highly recommend this class! Katie is a warm, knowledgeable and informative art instructor and a very talented artist herself.

Her passion for making one-of-a-kind works while sharing her mindset and processes made this experience truly memorable!
