Artist Kathy Tynan.
There’s an exciting two days of workshops at Highlanes Gallery next week for the February Midterm
Artist Kathy Tynan will be leading a special Workshop on Thursday February 20th from 11:30am to 1:00pm.
This gallery based workshop focuses on the research process that takes place when considering the subject matter of a painting. With the use of view finders children will identify, think and meditate on the visual particularities of the gallery and its immediate surroundings.
After making a preparatory sketch on paper of the image, children will make a small painting, using gouache paint on gesso board.
