Painting in the Poplars
LYONS ART ADVENTURE
July 22-23, 2023
Join us for a relaxing introduction to sketching and watercolor painting on the Sivy organic farm. We will jump into the compositional basics in value and shape and then work our way into color. Linda will discuss several different color palettes to simplify and vary each individual student's approach. She will show a variety of artists' approaches to landscape including realistic, expressive, fauvist and abstract in hopes of inspiring each of us to be conscious of our own unique leanings and mark making.
The setting offers a variety of subjects from the vegetable gardens, the poplar forest to the floral rock garden. The goal is for each of us to tap into the rhythms of nature and the plant world. Come enjoy the tranquility of the pastoral setting!

ABOUT INSTRUCTOR LINDA LOWRY
I grew up on the East Coast and moved to Colorado to attend Colorado College in '74. I got my MFA in Painting & Drawing at CU, Boulder in '83.
Teaching and making art has been my vocation. I taught painting, drawing, design and mixed media at the college level for over 20 years and chaired two college art departments. I continue to design and teach national and international adult painting workshops and mixed media workshops for all ages.
I have shown nationally & published a book on my work called "Inside Colorado."
My work has evolved over the years from paintings of older architecture with a contemporary sensibility, paintings influenced by travel, auto-biographical work and narrative printmaking. Monotypes and mono- prints have been a more recent focus, thanks to some wonderful master printers. Printmaking has opened up a world of invented narrative and experimental processes and outcomes. At the root of my work is a strong foundation in observational painting and a love of history and storytelling.
