The Shortgrass Arts Institute and the Southern Prairie Library System will be sponsoring an acrylic painting workshop. The workshop will be held on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, Feb. 8, 9, and Feb. 11 from 6 to 9 p.m. each evening. Lyn Taylor, coordinator for the Institute, is the instructor for the class. This class is suitable for beginners or experienced artists. The cost of the class is $30 and all materials will be provided.
Lyn brings a wealth of talent and education to her classes. Her formal instruction includes attending the Colorado Institute of Art in Visual Communications and Graphic Design, Cameron University and Southwestern Oklahoma State University. She has attended numerous seminars and workshops across the country with such noted artists as Doug Dawson and Ramon Killey. She is a member of the Colored Pencil Society of America and the Hawaii Watercolor Society. Lyn has used her artistic talents to create illustrated brochures, to design ad campaigns, stationery and menus for restaurants in Honolulu and to provide illustrations and brochures for technical seminars and products. This workshop is for anyone interested in creating art. Lyn believes that everyone has artistic talents. She feels that all a person needs is someone to help guide them in finding their way to what they are good at.
In this class, Lyn will introduce techniques such as dry brushing, washing, and stippling as well as applying paint with a palette knife. Lyn’s classes will give you the confidence you need to get out there and show your work in contests, exhibits such as those here at the library, and arts and craft shows around the state.
