Painting: Drawing and Painting with Yupo

November 9@10:00 AM - November 10@3:00 PM

$120

What is Yupo? A synthetic paper that is both smooth and nonabsorbent, allowing materials to glide freely during application. It invites a feeling of fluid, creamy markmaking and it’s easy to push around with q-tips, sponge applicators, and brushes. Erasers become a tool to restore light and make white lines. All in all, this combination of materials delivers a beautiful balance of dancing behaviors within a controlled value structure. Come explore, be creative!

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR: In her work, Kris Engman explores various subjects, materials, and genres as a painter of the Maine landscape. Most recently, she has exhibited at the Arden Gallery in Boston, the Schmidtberger Fine Arts Gallery in Pennsylvania, The Geras Tousignant Gallery in San Francisco and the Courthouse Gallery in Ellsworth. Kris received her MFA from the University of Pennsylvania and her BFA from the Maine College of Art. Although Engman’s artistic focus was as a sculptor for twenty-five years, for more than 15 years, she has painted the Maine landscape and worked from, what she defines as, ‘the ‘simplest of still lifes’. The work is an expression of color and pattern in some sort of balance that feels connected to daily routines and observations. From her Belfast studio, Kris teaches workshops in collaboration with Waterfall Arts in Color Theory at all levels and Basic Drawing. These workshops are run as well through River Arts in Damariscotta and in the Master Series at The Engine in Biddeford. She also teaches drawing, design and painting in the University of Maine Art Department.
