Kim Roberti Mini-workshops
Max 10 participants for each workshop.
Tuition $250 for 3 days
To me mood and feeling are more important than visual reference. The detail of what you see is subdued in translation to the artist’s intent. I’ve tried to use the language of painting, composition design, colors, and brushwork to convey the beautiful dialog between the painting and the viewers.
In this workshop students will be encouraged to regard the elements of what she/he sees as simple geometric shapes to develop their perception and understanding of the visual strength regardless the landscape, still life, or portrait without copying the image seen into a work of art. All practical and theoretical elements of painting any subject will be covered. Students will learn to work with big shapes first, in a powerful design, and then develop a more realistic painting with attention to values, colors, edges, and paint handling. Most of the class time will be spent on loose brushwork, colors, and design so students develop their own voices and allow the uniqueness of their artistic self to emerge. Individual instruction is tailored to the needs of each student.
Day 1 – Introduction lecture on composition and design. There will be a demo and painting exercise in the AM and a quick critic of the day’s work in the PM.
Day 2– A lecture on color and their relationships. There will be a demo and painting exercise in the AM and a quick critic of the day’s work in the PM.
Day 3 – A critic in the AM followed by a short demo on other genre (landscape, still life, figures, portraits) painting. There will be a quick critic of the day’s work in the PM.

About the Artist:
Kim Roberti was born in Vietnam, settled in New Hampshire, and now retired to Texas. Kim started to paint at the age of 50 via a mid-life crisis. Seeking to understand the artistry of being an artist, Kim worked and studied privately for Sherrie McGraw and David Leffel every summer for 6 years. She loves the spontaneity of Milt Kobayashi and has attended his workshops. Kim is a member of the Daily Painters movement and contributes 1 – 3 paintings a day and sells her paintings on Ebay. To date Kim has painted and sold close to 3,000 of her works worldwide, garnishing numerous collectors.
Kim won the Jack Richardson award in pastel painting in early 2000. Her work graced the cover of Dick Blick’s catalog cover and she has been published in books and magazines.“I am more focused on learning than competing, so my competition is to better myself today over yesterday. It’s my journey.”
