The Coos Art Museum is offering a brand new workshop this fall instructed by Kim Kimering. We’ll be hosting a figure painting class with a live model! Abstract painting, and collage will be used to create and cultivate a personal style for representing the human figure.

Kimerling is a prolific professional artist, having had at this time over 100 personal showings of his work in the US and abroad. He’s spent his career as a teacher of the arts at the University of Oregon and the University of Nigeria. The Coos Art Museum is proud to be hosting Kim’s latest workshop for a limited time here on the Oregon Coast.

Descending from a family of craftsmen and folk artists Kim has dedicated most of his life to creative endeavors. While traveling across the western United States and parts of Africa he’s spent his life time bring peoples together and melding cultural inspirations for the purpose of artistic expression and community. Kim graduated from the University of Idaho with degrees in art education. After which he began his teaching career as well as being a uniquely talented artist.

In this class Kim Kimerling will share his artistic interpretation of the human figure in a fun and exciting way. He will use acrylic paint as his primary medium and applications of other mediums to teach representation of the human figure in this painting class.

Students will experience a new way to express figures in their art with these techniques regardless of their skill level. This class is a lesson in exploring the familiar human form in an adventurous yet simplified way to represent bodies in a contemporary method of painting.
