Kokol Art studio is proud to offer two one-week workshops with Keiji Shinohara Japanese Master Printer. Keiji will divide the week into two sections focusing on Sumi-e and Woodblock. Beth had the opportunity to study with Keiji this summer and found him to be an inspiring teacher and wealth of knowledge in history as well as a top-notch technician. Keijis woodblock prints will also be featured in the Spring Show at Kokol Gallery “Scapes” . Keiji Shinohara is planning to attend the opening of “Scapes” Feb. 12 and is schedule to lecture on Saturday Feb 13, which is open to the public.
This class will give you a wonderful chance to explore painting using many different techniques and tools such as palette knives and shapers, as well as really understand the purpose of all those cool brushes we all wish we had such as rigger, Asian calligraphy brushes, etc.
These classes are designed to give children the chance to develop their imagination through age appropriate fun two and three dimensional projects. Projects will include modified clay, collage, drawing, acrylic, watercolor paints, and printmaking while also learning art history as many of the projects are related to the master artists of the past and present.
These classes are designed to develop technique as well as self-expression while using the same mediums as the younger classes. In this class the children will be offered a project that is based on Art history and or a technique.
These classes are independent study with the mediums of study being drawing and painting. The teens are encouraged to bring in ideas and thoughts on what they want to learn.
Welcome to my art studio that is conveniently located in South Tampa. I offer art lessons to adults that have never picked up a pencil to professionals looking to hone some skills, as well as children Pre-k through 12th grade. Whether it is weekly classes, field trips, adult out-of-town workshops or special workshops with visiting artists....one thing is for sure....there is always a lot going on in a fun and exciting environment.
I truly believe that creativity does not follow a clock and that every artist works at their own pace. In this crazy world, it is nice to know there is a place where there are no deadlines whether you are an adult or child. Every person is an artist in his or her own way. If given the time and the opportunity, art talent can be developed. Without a doubt you will learn and have fun. My goal is to teach art in a fun and creative atmosphere.
Beth was born and raised in Coral Gables, Florida, went to college at Florida State University and moved to Tampa in 1991. She has spent the better part of her life doing what she loves most: painting, teaching, and raising two children with her husband Bob. Her father, grandmother and cousins were all landscape and floral painters using oils, so her artistic passion came very naturally to her.
