Colors, Layers, and the Sharpie

November 12, 2020 6:30PM
Colors, Layers, and the Sharpie

In this workshop, students will work from photographs and found images, while exploring expressive color palettes through the use of Sharpie markers. Markers are uncompromising media. Students will have a crash course in confidence-building through drawing and ideating with this medium. Kathy Liao will discuss how students can use color as an expression and examine layers and compositions to create a compelling image.



Drawing inspirations from her diverse cultural background and personal history, Kathy Liao's mixed media work is about the intimate yet universal concept of relationships. Liao received her MFA in Painting from Boston University and BFA in Painting and Drawing from the University of Washington. Liao is a recipient of various awards including the 2020 Charlotte Street Foundation Visual Artist Award, Elizabeth Greenshield Foundation Grant, and artist grants and fellowships from Anderson Ranch Arts Center, Vermont Studio Center, and Jentel Artist Residency. Her work was shown in Boston, New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, Kansas City, and many other cities nationally and internationally. In the past, Liao was Director of the Painting and Printmaking Studio Art Program at Missouri Western State University, and taught at Boston University, University of Washington, Seattle University, and Gage Academy of Art. She is currently part of the Artist Services team at Mid-America Arts Alliance in Kansas City.
