Private Art Instruction (Getha)
A graduate of the University of Cincinnati, Pat has an Associate Degree in graphic design. She worked in the field for 20+ years doing layout, design and pre-press work for several printing companies. A move to Kansas City began a new chapter and she took up painting and drawing professionally to be home with her growing family. She has been painting professionally since 1999, specializing in wildlife art and photography. She has been nationally recognized for both and has been teaching art and photography classes at the Arts Castle since 2008. She is a published author/illustrator and has done instruction work with Walter Foster Publishing. Students may work in multiple mediums including Oil, Acrylic, Pencil, Colored Pencil and Photography. Students will learn the foundations of good design including composition and the utilization of line, shape, and value which is key to creating striking work that commands attention. Students preparing for college and needing assistance with portfolio preparation are welcome.
