In painting any subject, balancing what you see and how you want to interpret it with the brush can be daunting to many artists. During this workshop, Cat will demonstrate her process and the methods she employs while painting with an expressive, “Alla Prima” style. Following the demo, students will begin paintings of their own while receiving one-on-one instruction. During this in-depth course, students will begin to “see” in terms of drawing, intentional color, value, composition, and edges while exercising their own creative voice.

This workshop is open to artists of all levels working in oil, previous experience recommended. Students may work from their own photographs or the provided reference material. Supply list will be provided upon registration.

Please bring your own lunch. The class will take a break for lunch each day.

Cat Pope was raised in Clearwater, Florida and earned her degree in painting from Judson College in 2011. Whether working on location or in the studio, Cat paints to capture the atmosphere and light of her subjects with dynamic color and confident brushwork.

Cat currently lives with her husband and overstuffed tabby in Mobile, Alabama, where she focuses on painting the life and culture of the Gulf Coast region she loves. Her work has been featured in exhibitions throughout the southeastern United States and is collected throughout the nation. When not in the midst of creating, Cat is passionate about teaching workshops and encouraging others to chase after their inspiration in all of their creative pursuits.
