Trish McKinney

Sunday - June 2

[back to quicklinks]
$ 150  

Discover the wonder and beauty of Nature’s Palette through playful experimentation with paint, texture, and patterns. My Nature’s Palette paintings have evolved over the years, as most series should. Students will benefit from this evolution and learn some of my newest techniques on how I create texture and pattern in my backgrounds as well as how I choose my colors. They will experience the beauty of Nature’s Palette by implementing nature into pours of acrylic ink-like paint, playing with mixed media techniques to simulate natural texture, and organic stencils to simulate patterns. Imagine - leaves, grass, twigs, plants, all creatively combined with stencils, mark-making, and stamping to design a painting - with no drawing! Now how much fun does that sound?! Bring your imagination, your sense of adventure and leave your inhibitions at the door for we are going to shake things up!

Supplies to bring to class: everything will be provided!

optional materials to bring: favorite brushes, mark-making tools, palette knife, & stencils (only, if you have them) 

Art Materials Provided & Sponsored by: Golden, Ampersand, Princeton Brush Co. 
Trish will bring 22x30 sheets of Arches 140lb. hot press watercolor paper for student’s to purchase during class if they work quickly and need more paper than what will be provided.
