Classes at The Artist Materials Expo!

I am very excited to be teaching two workshops at the upcoming Artist Materials Expo Feb 21!

Summer Fun 12x12 oil on panel, palette knife painting. - Dawn Kinney Martin
Saturday, Feb 21, 9:00 - 12:00
Palette Knife Workshop
Room 4B
Ampersand  will be supplying the panels for the class!
I love to be on the water and boats are one of my favorite things to paint. This 3 hours course will cover issues like different way to handle the knife,blocking in design, color mixing , and capturing reflected light. Students should expect to loosen up and  create expressive paintings with a palette. Working with a palette knife allows a broad range of textures.  Students learn the nuances of value, working wet in wet and layering in order to keep colors rich and vibrant.  There will be an emphasis on color mixing and keep you colors clean (no muddy colors) This course will begin with a demo to cover the basic approach.  Demonstrations will continue as well as working one on one with the students as you work on your paintings. All levels welcome. Appropriate for beginners. The class will be taught using oils. Please contact instructor at with any questions.
The class will be taught using oils. Can use Acrylics with a slow drying medium.
