The Imaginary Landscape Workshop 

with Cheryl Kline

Fridays, 11am - 12:15pm (class sometimes runs longer)

4 week session (Starts in June) | $200 

Allow me to guide you on an artistic journey into an unknown landscape that is unique to you. Using your intuition, imagination and materials, each of you will create a visual story, a note to self, and in some cases …a spiritual oasis.


In this workshop you will learn techniques to help you unlock the blocks that can inhibit us from our primal needs as human beings, to create and play.

Session 1 will be a presentation on many types and styles- you can be a realist or an abstract artist and all levels are welcome. Then we will begin our journey to help you find your image.


During the week you will send us your studies the day before our next session.


Session 2 will begin with a brief critique to guide you through completing and fine tuning the studies. Then we will have a materials demonstration to give you yet another method to create an imaginary landscape.


Session 3 and 4 will be similar to the above with more critiques and more demonstrations of materials and techniques giving you plenty to explore for later, larger works.


One-on-one Private Online Session

If you are beginner, we will walk you through how to start your drawing and painting and every step along the way. If you are an experienced artist, we can help take you to the next level. The cost will be $100/hour. 

The private session will meet on Zoom, Skype or FaceTime. Please make sure to download the app to have online meetings.
