Our presenting artist for this month is Christine Webster, and she will be presenting on watercolors.
Christine is a watercolorist with over 30 years of experience. Her work has been exhibited in a variety of spaces and owned by several private collectors such as the NCAA. One painted piece was done on fabric and became part of the September 11 Quilt Project. This piece was featured in People Magazine.
Originally trained at the University of Central Missouri in art education, she continued her artistic training specifically in watercolor from Adams State University in Taos, New Mexico.
As an Artist/Educator, Christine taught in the Kansas City, Kansas, district for over 30 years and at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art for over 36 years. Both positions allowed her to experience working with children and adults from diverse populations.
The compositions in Christine’s work reflects these experiences. Many of her paintings are directly inspired by the Nelson Museum’s collections. Some grew out of a painting demonstration for adult students at the Museum and were finished later in her home studio. Other works were developed using her travels in the southwest, China and Italy. And an assortment of flowers from many sources have become paintings. Her work is vibrant in color and utilizes many layers of transparent paint. She uses a variety of techniques that provide interesting visual effects within her paintings.
In the workshop she will present in March, Christine hopes to share some of these visual effects as well as some basic foundations of watercolor theory.
