Klimt and the Glorious Gold with Andrea Mossop

About Andrea Mossop

Andrea has a B. A. from the University of Western Ontario, followed by advanced studies in drawing and painting from the Ontario College of Art.  She is a passionate painter and an experienced teacher, renowned for her depth of knowledge and the breadth of her imagination.  

Exuberant colour in elegant shapes, richly patterned intricate designs define the appeal and sensuous beauty of Klimt's paintings of the human form, fabric, flowers and verdant landscapes.

This workshop is a primer on abstraction. You will learn how to create simple, flat shape-zones, harmoniously arranged in dramatic colour and pattern into ordered compositions to achieve this airy, revitalizing quality of painting that freed itself from carefully rendered representation in favour of mesmerizing effects.

Learn how, and significantly why, Klimt and the Austrian arts movement at the turn of the twentieth century freely extended the legacy of Eastern,  Byzantine and Medieval art  and how Klimt's paintings inform contemporary art.

Medium of choice:  watercolour; gouache; oil; acrylic; collage; mixed media.  All levels of experience.





In advance of the workshop, you will receive reading materials and internet links regarding the project, and a supply list in order to be ready for Saturday morning.
