Joyful Abstraction in Acrylic

Kay Brathol-Hostvet

October 13 & 14 | 9 - 4

There is joy in color and experimentation! Learn about basic composition, paint handling, and explore color combinations while creating non-representational or abstract paintings in acrylic. Working from small value studies and intuitive design and color, join Kay to create direct, playful paintings. Acrylic is an easy medium for exploration because it dries quickly, allowing for quick changes and layering, and because there are a multitude of mediums available to the artist to modify the texture of your painting. Previous experience with acrylic is not necessary. A supply list will be sent and is available at www.theclearing.org.

Kay is a Signature Member of the Pastel Society of America and has a BFA from the University of Wisconsin-Stout, with concentrations in drawing and painting. She works from her studio in Eau Claire, WI and is represented by Edgewood Orchard Galleries in Fish Creek, Abel Contemporary Gallery in Stoughton, and Riverwood Art and Frame in Eau Claire.
