Our very first 'Art on a Carte' event went off without a hitch this past Sunday,
and the entire class did an absolutely amazing job!
Thank you guys so much for coming!
It was a great way to spend a cold, snowy day, and I hope you all left inspired, and with a little more art in your soul.
Here is a photo spread of the event!
|The 'Carte' packed and ready to go!|
|I am so proud and so honored;|
My first official event, surrounded by my new painting series on exhibit, in my dear friend's restaurant, in my hometown...
It doesn't get any better!
THE ART HISTORY AND COLOR THEORY PORTION!
|Introducing Impressionism and Post-Impressionism|
|Learning about van Gogh; |
his history, his work, his life, his legacy...
|Color Theory Portion;|
The class was only allowed to use the primary colors, plus white and black to create their images;
they had to create any and all other colors themselves!
|Demonstrating the complementary colors and how to make neutrals|
|Demonstrating the value scale, and how to make tints and shades|
(I'm so serious?!!?)
TIME TO PAINT!
Every student was encouraged to choose their own color scheme, format and approach;
Thank you Impressionism for allowing us to pour our own creativity and personalities onto the canvas!
|The moment when people find their groove is magical!|
|A little liquid encouragement...|

Kath is the reason this entire event happened!
I LOVE HER!
Thank you again to everyone who came out and made this event a success!
I had an amazing time, and I am so excited and honored that I got to start this new adventure in my hometown with all of you.
There is no place like home!
Keep painting and I hope to see you again soon!
