The Heritage Fine Arts Guild of Arapahoe County presents another in a series of one-day workshops led by popular Denver artist and teacher Victoria Kwasinski.
Victoria asks the question,” Remember when you were a child, and you were lying in the grass and found stories and shapes in the clouds?” We will explore finding shapes, themes, stories from initial washes of color and mark making; then, using our intuition we will develop these ideas into a great painting. This workshop is for artists of all levels and all mediums.
Kwasinski holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design where she graduated class valedictorian. She has over 30 years of experience as a professional artist and has worked as a corporate graphic artist, freelance illustrator, gallery owner, fine artist and art instructor.
Victoria considers herself an ‘interpretive abstract’ artist. Her goal is to create an abstracted visual interpretation of a thought, feeling or idea through the interplay of color and form that is often interwoven and connected with line.
Ms. Kwasinski has been teaching drawing and painting extensively throughout the Denver Metropolitan area since 1996. She has taught workshops and extended class sessions, served as an exhibit juror, and has held critiques and demonstrations for various arts associations including, but not limited to: The Colorado Watercolor Society, The Colorado Pastel Society, Foothills Art Center, Heritage Fine Arts Guild, Denver Allied Artists Guild, Aurora Artists Guild, Broomfield Art Guild, Park Hill Art Club, Business of Art Center, and other public and private associations.
Victoria works in a variety of art mediums, and the versatility of her work serves a varied audience. She is a published illustrator, and her fine art is represented by galleries, shown in local and national juried exhibitions, and is collected internationally including collections of: The National Institute of Art/Taipei, Taiwan; The National Museum of Brazil/MUBE; His Holiness Cealo/Japan; Dr. Arun Gandhi; musician Nawang Khechog, and numerous private collections. She has contributed art works or services to groups including; The Mask Project, The Global Art Project, Project Safeguard, Art that Heals, and The Alzheimer’s Association.
Of her lifetime journey as an Artist, Victoria states, “Art is my passion and my joy! I believe that we are here to live our purpose as defined by what we are passionate about, that which makes our heart sing.
