Kim English is a nationally renowned artist, Signature Member, AIS, OPA, PAPSE. He is known for his beautiful narrative figures in the environment. Kim is represented throughout the US, featured in countless national art magazines. Quote from Kim: "Immediacy is apparent in my work because it is the nature of my subjects, and for me, the most instinctive way to paint. Form and light are critical elements." This dynamic workshop will teach you to rapidly capture figurative gestures, light and form. Discover how to paint quickly and accurately, concentrating on the process as well as the narrative.

This is a class comprised of many studies and demonstrations by Kim, rather than lecture and theory. Kim demonstrates on and off throughout the workshop providing an opportunity to observe how he captures the whole scene in 20 minutes or less. His methods are quick and accurate, keeping the painting fresh and alive.

Kim will be assisting artists individually at their easels. He will challenge you to paint the model(s) starting in 3 minutes up to 10 and 20 minutes by the 2nd or 3rd day. This process forces the painter to see the shapes and forms and light patterns and not be bogged down in the details.

One day will be spent outside in the neighborhood surrounding the gallery painting the model outdoors.
