Working with an unclothed model, participants will explore unusual ways of applying watercolor and gouache to paper creating beautiful figure paintings with a contemporary, abstract look. Composition, drawing and color choices will be emphasized. Print making rollers, eyedroppers and scrapers will be tools of choice along with a brush or two.
Kate Worm holds a bachelor’s degree from Michigan State University and a master's degree from Columbia University Teachers College, with minors in visual arts. She studied figure painting for four years with renowned painter and educator Andrew Martin at UNC Greensboro. She paints landscape and still life with oil, but uses watercolor and gouache for figure work. Her approach with both media is a radical departure from traditional painting because she uses printmaking rollers, syringes and eyedroppers to apply the paint.
Worm's figure paintings were featured in American Artist Watercolor Magazine Summer 2006 and she has been presenting workshops throughout the country since. Her paintings hang in major public collections, including those of the Hickory Museum of Art, Bank of America in Charlotte, City of Winston-Salem, RJR Nabisco and Sara Lee.
Worm is a Signature Member of the NWS and WSNC and has the honor of 1st place in the Watercolor Society of North Carolina 2010 Annual Exhibition. She is represented by Carlton Gallery in Banner Elk, Somerhill Gallery in Chapel Hill, Art Source in Raleigh, Tyler White Gallery in Greensboro and City Art Gallery in Greenville.
