“Finger Painting Colorful Landscapes” 1 or 2-day workshop w/ Kimberly Adams

This workshop is sold out.
We have scheduled another one on July 23 (and also another is coming on Oct 1.)

DATE/TIME: Saturday June 25 / 10:30-4:30pm
Optional 2nd Day: Sun June 26 / 10:30-4:30pm

COST:  $125 for one day; $225 for both days


In this one-day or optional two-day class, Kimberly Adams will teach you how to paint landscapes and poppies with your fingertips! She will share her easy tips on how to mix color directly on the canvas and manipulate the paint into thick texture. You will enjoy the simplicity of this technique and find it refreshing not to use tools or brushes. In addition to painting, Kimberly will put you at ease on deciding when a painting is finished and celebrate the ‘happy accidents’ that occur - as these ‘happy accidents’ so often become the best part of the painting.  

On Saturday, you will leave the class with a vibrant landscape of a poppy field full of color and texture that will dazzle your friends and family as you share your story about its creation.  

On Day 2 Kimberly will expand on the finger painting technique you learned on Day 1. On this 2nd day you will paint a 2nd painting of a poppy path among birch trees. 


Canvas: 16x20, gallery wrapped

1 16x20 canvas for each day. (So, 2 canvases if you sign up for both days.)
