About the event

Workshop will be held October 5, 6 and 7 from 9 AM - Noon and 1-4 PM each day. 

"Understanding the Sky" This workshop will focus on interpreting skies. We'll study the different cloud shapes, their colors, transparency and, of course, drama! All while putting them together over a beautiful Kansas landscape. The focus will be on using composition, value, color schemes, and brushstrokes for the students to paint their desired results. The instructor will help each student reach their individual painting goals by working with you at the level you have currently reached. We always have a ton of fun! Originally from St. Louis, Instructor Cristine Sundquist, has studied drawing and painting from the age of 12. Her early art education came from private art instructors and workshops at Washington University and the St. Louis Art Museum. She later studied Fine Arts and Art Education at the University of Kansas. Cristine participates in local and national juried and invitational gallery shows. She is represented by Prairiebrooke Arts in Overland Park, KS as well as Strecker Nelson West Gallery in Manhattan, KS. "My work depicts primarily the Kansas landscape with an emphasis on the Flint Hills and Southeast region of the state. I strive to visually contradict the popular belief that Kansas is flat and uninteresting. It's the simple beauty of the area that keeps me painting day after day. The rolling hills and majestic skies provide daily inspiration for new work and drive me to solve the artistic issues of color and light, but the land provides more than that. Small details such as the sun hitting creek grass, or the reflection of a distant pond is both exciting and peaceful to me. My main goal for a painting is to have the viewer feel the peace and see the beauty that is so easily missed in our hectic lives." See more at
