Kathleen Robbins Fine Art
Welcome to my website.
I am a professional artist with 30 years of experience. I have been painting images of the Seacoast area of N.H. as well as Southern Maine over the past 15 years. My repetoire of work also includes abstract work as well as still life.
My studio is located at the Button Factory in Portsmouth N.H. where I produce my own work as well as provide workshops in oil painting, acrylic painting, watercolor and mixed media. I believe in teaching from observation to develop strong skills in the foundations of drawing, value, and creating a sense of light and space. Although I also work abstractly I believe without these skills it is difficult for the artist who is developing their skills to make the necessary leap.
Exeter Hospital's Center for Cancer Care
Over the past 5 years I have also worked as an artist in residence at Exeter Hospital's Center for Cancer Care. There I have developed an art program for our patients that include one on one art lessons in the infusion treatment areas as well as offering a traditional art class where patients use the creative process as a springboard to give a voice to there hopes, fears, desires and as a healing tool to get through a very stressful situation.
Plein Air Painting Workshops Fall 2012 Schedule
This is a 2 day intensive workshop in which we will explore the relationship of the landscape and our personal responses to the visual language presented to us. The landscape can be overwhelming.
The workshop will focus on paring down the details to organize a well thought out painting in which color, composition and value work in consonance to become the vehicle for creating a dynamic piece of work. We will focus on color mixing strategies and brush technique to work quickly and confidently. I will be demonstrating and working with individuals throughout the workshop and we will end each day with a final critique.
This workshop is not for a beginning student.
