Thurs. 11am - 2pm
In this Contemporary Painting workshop...It's not about quantity...but quality.
We offer a relaxed environment in which to explore your own ideas and interpretations using different materials and even the ones you are comfortable with. We don't necessarily "throw the baby out with the bath water" because even contemporary art follows principles of design, composition, rhythm and color. Students will expand their creative potential and have fun exploring the freedom in style and techniques of contemporary painting and drawing.
Are you getting ready for a show? We can help you build your body of work so it is inspiring, cohesive and ready to hang.

Classical Painting Student
I knew very little about the use of oil paint or the techniques used to create museum and gallery quality paintings; the use of color; the different brushes as tools to create beautiful illusions of landscapes, portraits and still lifes. Kline Academy, unlike any school or art course I have found, offers inspired artists the opportunity to acquire excellence in classical style oil painting as well as many other artistic techniques. Cheryl Kline is an excellent educator who is passionately contributing her training and experience as a classical artist, teacher and mentor to many striving to be all they can be in the world of art I could not be happier to have found Kline Academy and the opportunity to expand my goal to be the best artist I can be in my lifetime.
