Even if you don't want to get into juried/judged shows, you can improve all aspects of your paintings. Having taken over 60 workshops in oil, watercolor, design, and color, I can pass along many "Tips of the Trade". I will critique and you will paint your own designs which we will tweak or discuss tweaking ;)


As many paintings as you would like to have critiqued - you may work on all, one, or none over the three days.

If you want to design something from scratch:

As many photos or designs we can tweak

A pad of paper

Tracing paper

Transfer paper

Pencil and white eraser


The painting supplies you use - oil, watercolor, pastel, pencil, etc (canvas, watercolor paper, pastel, paper, etc)

Big Smile! We are going to have fun!

Represented by Elizabethan Gallery, and Kathy's Cypress Studio, both in Baton Rouge, LA.

The parents of two, Kathy and her husband, Dick, enjoy traveling and attending art functions together and promoting Kathy's giclées at her studio.

Kathy says: "My life of art spans from age 7 drawing horses, paper dolls and their clothes, to drawing caricatures for extra spending money at Miss St. College for Women (now MUW) while studying Commercial Art, to the present day of jurying and judging national, regional, and area shows. I love teaching workshops such as 'Masking and Pouring in Transparent Watercolor', 'Painting A Masterpiece Using Light & Shadow', 'Marketing Your Art on a Shoestring Budget' and 'Creative Solutions'. I also teach individual classes-on-request. My love is painting landscapes, particularly the swamps and massive oak trees in Louisiana, but I can also get lost in a portrait or an animal painting."
