Kate Thompson's FANCY LASSIES Workshop

  • Instructor Kate Thompson
  • Date December 2-3, 2017
Reserve your seat before spots run out!


In this class I will be teaching painting and drawing fanciful girls using watercolors and chalk paints.

The first part of the class I demonstrate how to create color combinations and print patterns to decorate our girls clothing as well as used to make collage pieces. We will practice drawing and painting Little Lassie portraits and I demo how to paint a portrait working from planes of the face to get familiar with portraits and then take these skills to create more whimsical portraits. I will then show you how to create your own fancy lassie with some simplified drawing techniques as well as collage. We start to use some of our prints we created to become design elements and patterns on the girls. I will have images available for image transfer and collage.

Watercolor paper and some vintage fabric will be the substrate we will be working on.

Workshops Policies
Half-day, full-day, multi-day workshops, and special events are scheduled throughout the year. Once you purchase a workshop you will be enrolled.

If you would like to enroll in a workshop that has been sold out, please send an email to bill@donnadowney.com and you will be put on a waiting list.

Due to limited class size, purchased spots for all workshops are transferable but payment is non-refundable.

What this means: If you buy a class spot and are unable to attend, and if there is a waiting list of students that has formed, we will put you in contact with the first person on the list to whom you can offer your class spot. If the person on the list accepts, then that person will need to pay you for your spot and once that transaction is complete and both parties are satisfied, we will transfer your spot to the other person. If you are unable to attend and there is no waiting list, we will unfortunately be unable to provide refunds.

Emergency Cancelations
In the very rare event of an emergency or unavoidable natural disaster or act of God, the class may be cancelled. In this situation, all fees will be reimbursed to students in full.
