Course Description

Join Kate Thompson for Sacred Vestments | Expressive Portraits and Figures. In this course we will be creating 3 completed paintings. The focus is on faces with abstract figures.

These figures will be adorned with vestments that we make out of all different types of materials; fabric, vintage lace, old vintage papers, plastered vintage fabrics, transfer skins, scribbled and painted abstract pieces, and stenciled pages. Hand stitching and matte medium will help to attach these vestments to the figures. We will use joint compound to create relief techniques for added dimension to the pieces. I show you so many techniques that you can take to make art that is creative and personal to you.

Kate is a teacher who cares about her students. She is quick to respond to personal requests asking input on a painting that you need her personal expertise and guidance to enhance or correct. She is so talented and knowledgeable and shares so much of herself. I am so glad I am enrolled in her amazing on line classes, she is truly an exceptional teacher and artist.

Taking a class with Kate Thompson is such a delightful and inspiring creative adventure. Her passion and enthusiasm shines through it all from demonstrating a technique to being available for questions and help. Watching her video lessons often makes me feel like I’m sitting next to her in her studio watching a beautiful and talented artist at work. A really lovely way to take a class.
