MEET KATHY LEWIS - ARTIST/INSTRUCTOR

KathyLewisFullPic

I began taking online art classes, met Kara Strachan Bullock, and took almost all of the workshops she hosted at her local studio. I was in heaven to have this new friend and later her wonderful studio located less than 20 minutes from home! I also continued online courses and one had a particularly awesome affect on my art journey. It was taught by Jeanne-Marie Webb called "the soulbearers". I would never in a million years have expected to fall in love with sculpting clay! When working with clay I felt peace and joy unlike anything ever before experienced. I have not put it down in four years and continue to find great pleasure in creating with clay. It is my 'go to' art medium. I create purely from the heart having had no formal sculpting education and somehow I am afraid to pursue the art of sculpting in a formal way because I am afraid it would ruin the freedom with which I create. I hope to spread the joy of creating in clay, something that young and old, beginner and experienced can enjoy. I hope you can experience the feeling i heard in my granddaughter's comment recently when she said, "Grandma, I am so happy making this (clay sculpture). It is the most wonderful thing I have ever made."

PRIVATE GROUP JUST FOR YOU!

 

This course will have a private Facebook group just for you!  I will be actively involved with the class via Facebook during the four weeks that the course is open!  I am really excited about working through these exercises with each of you!

COURSE SUPPLIES

Below is a list of the supplies that I will be using for the projects in this course.  This list may appear long but you will have most of the items around the house and will only need to order a few things.  

Clay

Tools

Paint

  • Permanent (waterproof) fine liner in size 0.2 or 0.5 or similar. I use UniPen but there are many other good brands
  • Paint, any acrylic paint you like. I use golden in these colors:
    • Titanium White
    • Titan Buff
    • Red Oxide,
    • Raw Umber,
    • Payne’s Gray,
    • Yellow Oxide or Yellow Ochre,
    • Iridescent Bronze (fine),
    • Mars Yellow
    • Black
    • I am using shading gray (Golden High Flow Acrylic) a lot lately!

***Your paint can be heavy body or fluid but be sure you at least have white and black in fluid. A new color that I seem to use in EVERYTHING is Matisse Australian Ghost Gum, and I am also loving Jo Sonja’s olive and vermillion. These are the colors I am using but you do not need to get them all. Just use what you have.

Paint Brushes:

  • Paint Brushes - Blick Scholastic brushes are cheap and work well, include detail and mid size. Here are some I like:

Other Supplies:

Optional: if you would like to collage papers on the faces you will want a little light weight paper as in book pages, tissue or napkins and some matte medium to glue to the clay (also seals it).
