Saturday & Sunday: January 25 & 26

This two-day acrylic workshop highlights the relationship between core compositional elements in landscapes and abstracts. The first day focuses on creating a simple landscape with a limited color palette and producing depth using glazing and layering techniques.On the second day, attendees will use their landscape as inspiration for a new abstract painting. Demonstrations and individualized feedback are provided throughout the workshop.

No experience is required unless noted. The Museum provides student-quality supplies included in the fee unless indicated otherwise.

Instructor Jaya King is a California native based out of Sacramento who has been showing, teaching, and demonstrating her work throughout the San Francisco Bay Area since 2003. Jaya has a passion for color and finds excitement exploring the nuances of color relationships while painting. Her powerful acrylic landscapes and dynamic encaustic abstracts both share the theme of using a limited color palette. Her enjoyment of teaching creates a learning environment designed to inspire others to explore their own artistic capabilities. Her work has been published in Splash 11: New Directions and recently in Incite 3: The Best of Mixed Media. At age 24 she was invited to do a solo show at Stanford University and is in the permanent collection at the Triton Museum of Art in Santa Clara.
