KT Lane O’brien is teaching a Sculptural Painting Series at The Refuge in Lowell MA, starting in early August.
Sculptural Painting (Fun for all ages!)
Instructor: Katie O’Brien
In this course, students will be using traditional methods of collage and paint, in conjunction with sculptural materials, to create a form that functions as a 2D and a 3D piece of art. Participants will form a more critical eye for the colorful environments around them, while learning more about how the dynamics of gravity can add to their work. Additionally, a special focus will be placed on exploring the benefits of embracing the balance of control and chance into their artistic practice.
8/4, 8/5, 8/11, 8/12
10am – 1pm
No prerequisite required. Dress for class expecting to get messy! ALL MATERIALS PROVIDED… personal sketchbooks or notepads are encouraged!
Katie Lane O’Brien received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from a small program at the New England School of Art and Design at Suffolk University where her love of all things paint was fostered and explored at an intimate individual level. Her journey has led her through various genres from large scale abstracts to photo realism. Most days, Katie can be found in her studio experimenting with different ways to make a mess, playing with different textures, and making off-the-wall paintings.
