True Colors

March 17 - 23, 2019

Medium: Acrylic / Mixed Media

Level: All Levels

5-Day Studio Class

This five-day workshop will open a floodgate of exciting new methods for creating acrylic and mixed media artwork. Join Kellee Wynne Conrad as she shares all the secrets to her luminous layered method of acrylic painting while at the same time digging deep into the creative process to help you discover your personal artistic style. With Kellee’s guidance, you won’t be shying away from bright colors and bold marks. You’ll learn how to ask questions while painting and look for answers in each mark as an important part of finding your own voice.

From abstract florals to modern landscape, Kellee hopes to ignite your passion for color while using the most versatile medium ever created: fluid acrylic paints. Watch paint drip, run and flow with a spray bottle, rubbing alcohol and high flow mediums. Play with graphite, charcoal and soft pastel to make your mark. Scrape, scratch, stumble and spray wet paint for altered effects. Add touches of oil pastel, water soluble crayon, and more. Use multiple stencils and mark making tools all on one painting successfully. Learn how to boldly use collage on your work or subtly hide it in paint to reveal new layers. And most importantly, learn to mix color like you never have before!

Over the course of the workshop, Kellee will guide you to turn play into several completed works of art. Everything you’ll learn in this workshop will stand on its own to create new paintings, add new ideas to your current body of work, or bring new life to your personal art journal. Don’t get bogged down in your old routine, let’s shake things up with paint, paper and play and discover your own True Colors.

About Kellee Wynne Conrad

Brought up from a long line of artists in California, Kellee Wynne Conrad lived with art as part of her daily life playing in sculpture gardens and running through artists’ studios. Now settled in Maryland with her husband and three boys, Kellee has dedicated herself to the creative process, revealing complex layers of paint and emotion in her work. From showing locally in Maryland and being represented by national retailer, Maine Cottage, to being curated into an international exhibit in Chelsea, NYC and winning Signature Membership with the International Society of Acrylic Painters, she has found opportunity at every turn. But it was only after the experience of focusing intently on her own art in a ten month residency in Baltimore that Kellee realized she thrives best when working with others.

Kellee has had the opportunity of working with Maryland Federation of Art as their off-site exhibits coordinator, creating original exhibits with West Annapolis Artworks and running exciting new programs for emerging artists, which have led her to finally fulfill her vision of an art education program. 2017 brought the birth of the Color Crush Creative, a thriving, internationally followed online community of color loving artists. It is through this program that Kellee has been able to connect with the hearts and souls of artists around the world, discovering that teaching her love of color and paint is her true calling.
