Instructor: Alice Glass
Students will work alongside artist Alice Glass as she takes them through her process of painting with a palette knife. The instructor will use a landscape as her inspiration for this piece and will show students how she utilizes different techniques to create her art. Much of this class will be demonstration based but students will come out with their own paintings by the end of class. Supplies are included.
Raised in a family brimming with commercial and fine artists, Alice Glass has always had a deep love for art, but didn’t start painting until early 2015. Her first experimental paintings gave way to a variety of subject matter including abstracts, florals, landscapes, Mediterranean villages, beaches, still life, and commissioned pieces of family houses and pets. Most of Alice’s work features bright and colorful acrylic paint on canvas, and most of her work is produced exclusively with her favorite selection of palette knives. Alice’s style is to quickly create her subject matter with broad painterly strokes leaving thick, expressive bands and pods of colors mixed on her palette board as well as the canvas itself. In less than five years, Alice has created more than 950 paintings in a variety of sizes with her artwork displayed in several regional galleries, and has coordinated a dozen one- woman shows. A 33 year resident of Lynchburg and a 1980 graduate of Mary Baldwin College, more than 500 pieces of Alice’s artwork can be found in the homes of more than 350 collectors.
