    "OUT ON THE LINE' - OIL ON LINEN

    BY KATHIE ODOM


    Kathie - on location


    In this workshop, Kathie will help you build confidence with your painting techniques, regardless of where you are on your journey.  She'll show you how to feel confident in taking more risks and trusting yourself enough to let your creative instincts do more of the work.  


    She'll guide you on how to tell more powerful and captivating stories instead of simply "painting a pretty picture."  You'll find out how to "be one with the brush", and discover what job each bush is really supposed to be doing!  You'll see how to mix colors fearlessly and splash colors confidently.  You'll also get the opportunity to uncover ideas and techniques that can dramatically improve your approach to painting. 


    With what you learn in this workshop, you'll experience newfound joy with painting!


    Who is this remarkable instructor?


    "the tools of my trade are not words; I use brush, paint, and canvas. I also use some tools that might surprise you, including steel wool, palette knives, makeup applicators, credit cards, Kleenex tissues, and my own fingertips. Once, I left all but one of my brushes at home and used the nearby weeds and blades of grass to supplement my toolbox. "


    Kathie Odom calls herself a "nostalgic Impressionist".  She has a unique way of identifying subjects from which even the most experienced artist can learn a thing or two. For the past 10 years, Kathie has traveled extensively and spent much of her time oil painting across America. You can bet she's highly passionate about plein air----she often allows herself to get lost in the process of it all, thanks to her bold brushwork.


    If your confidence needs a boost & you're ready to become a much more bold and courageous painter, you definitely want to take this workshop with Kathie Odom!
