SPOTLIGHT ON OUR FEATURED ARTISTS:
KATY DOBSON CUNDIFF
Katy Dobson Cundiff, a very familiar face to our Light Chasers members is offering figure/portrait workshops and open studio sessions in her studio, starting in February and ending in April. Please make use of this opportunity to study with a very exciting and talented Light Chasers Featured Artist. Last year Katie judged our Paint Sarasota Paint Out and we were all inspired by her very moving comments about what drives an artist to create art and to keep on creating in todays world. Katie has provided over the years to the Light Chasers many interesting and informative demos and workshops. Katie's painting style encompasses a very large area between realistic and bordering on abstract and her use of color and subject matter is always eye catching to the viewer.
Don't miss this opportunity to study with a vibrant and very talented teacher who can bring your creative efforts to the next level in your artistic journey!
I am offering a class the 2nd and 4th Saturday mornings of each month, and open studio in the afternoons, starting in February and ending in April.
The class is open to all levels. One-on-one instruction, critiques, and demonstrations on drawing and painting the portrait and figure from life are included.
Open studio sessions are held in the afternoons, allowing extended time for working on drawings or paintings for those attending the morning session. Open studio is offered to students in morning class at a reduced rate.
Artists wishing to come in the afternoon only should pre-register to reserve a space.
Thank you for your support for my work and my studio!
