Metamorphosis

Trish McKinney
9:00 - 4:30
Sunday March 20

[back to quicklinks]
$ 170  

Metamorphosis is the process of transformation – a transition from one form into another – a dramatic evolving of something from a simple to a more complex form. As an artist, it is a goal to always be striving for the next level of understanding and to
continually evolve. This workshop will intertwine bold  layers of color, dynamic shapes, and rhythmic patterns to create an emotional connection, a new way of looking at a subject, and a new way of painting. Students will learn powerful design concepts, color
value, the importance of color play, and strong composition. This will all combine to transform each student’s ideas about design, color and composition! To see paintings created with this technique, visit the artist’s webpage for her Metamorphosis Collection -
www.trishmckinney.com/metamorphosis - these paintings tell the story about her own daughter’s transformation.
