RESCHEDULED Sefla Joseph "Insight is the Way Out"

2 day Workshop MAY 18 & 19

“Insight is the Way Out”

Sefla Joseph 2 Day Workshop

We will be exploring what lies within the human figure: the aches and joys of human experience. Using color, shapes, bold and loose brushwork, layering, and texturing, we will work intuitively with the figure to convey emotions. This workshop is designed for all levels of painters, both beginners and more experienced painters who would like to loosen up!

Peggi Kroll Roberts 2 Day Workshop

Peggi Kroll Roberts 2 Day Workshop

PAINTING THE STILL LIFE & FIGURE  

GOUACHE, OIL & WATERCOLOR IS WELCOME

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Award-winning artist, Peggi Kroll-Roberts, was trained at Arizona State University and the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA.  Peggi worked as a fashion and advertising illustrator before making the transition into fine art. Using intense color and value to accentuate her subject, she moved into fine art with a bold palette, a love for small paintings and a very loose style that achieves a lot with a few very energetic brush strokes. She prefers to suggest reality than render it.

Inspired by her children she paints beach scenes and other aspects of their lives. She also breaks away from the conventional still life by painting scenes of cosmetics and the occasional coffee cup or slab of butter. Peggi's work gives us a new appreciation of our own daily life.
