Starting a painting with color, texture, gestural marks and layers may seem like "chaos", but it delivers vital energy that is both fun and intuitive. Great design and composition are the elements that bring "order" to the rich start and turn your painting into an attention-getting and impressive finish. Applying strong design and compositional skills are the focus.

Beginner or advanced, you are encouraged to discover and explore your unique expression and personal imagery in realism, abstraction or non-objective.

In this powerful workshop, Ken reveals 'color secrets' and design ideas each day. He offers guidelines which encourage you to creatively interpret painting subjects in your own style. Painting demonstrations emphasize free, spontaneous painting and cover a variety of subjects, including landscape, flowers, human figures, or animals.

Ken clearly explains his artistic method as he paints, organizes his ideas into simple terms, and in a positive and gentle manner, skillfully pinpoints and verbalizes exactly what your painting needs for improvement.

Ideal for beginning and advanced students. A typical day might include demonstration and lecture in the morning with class work time and individual help in the afternoon. The workshop ends with an uplifting and informative critique session.


Nationally Known Artist Workshops

Twice a year, LAC has been able to have Nationally Known Artists travel to Latrobe for a 3 to 5 day workshop. In the past, we have had artists from Alabama, Ohio, New Jersey, New York, Colorado, Maine, & Arizona teach a variety of techniques. Anywhere from 10 to 20 students fill the gallery for these workshops. Artists attending the workshops have traveled from Massachusetts, West Virginia, Maryland, New York, Florida & Ohio. In addition, 4 students from the Greater Latrobe Senior High School are chosen in the Spring to attend the workshop under a generous scholarship.

Each year the Latrobe Art Center strives to provide exciting and stimulating workshops taught by nationally known artists from across the United States. In the past we have hosted Frank Francese of Colorado, Janet Rogers of Florida, Margaret Martin of New York, Fred Graff of Ohio, Don Andrews, Jean Uhl Spicer, and Joyce Werwie Perry all of Pittsburgh, and many more! The Latrobe Art Center is honored to have such prestigious artists share their wealth of information and experience with all of our local artists. Please consider broadening your creative talents by attending one of our future workshops.
