Plan ahead for Kathleen Cook’s, PSA summer workshop as Kathleen returns to Amarillo!
Please join Amarillo Art Institute as we welcome Kathleen, a pastel painter of color and light! A product of Amarillo High School, graduated from Amarillo College in 1969, and is considered one of America’s extraordinary pastel artists. We are excited as Kathleen returns to Amarillo to teach.
A professional artist for more than 40 years, Cook’s artwork has been featured on several magazine covers and in galleries throughout the nation. She has won numerous juried competitions. Kathleen writes, ‘I have been an artist for a long time and have grown in my understanding of what this life path means. An artist needs two lifetimes, one just to acquire the skills of learning the language of artistic expression…the How’s. How to see color, how to draw & paint, how to use the supplies. The second lifetime, and most important-I think, is trying to discover what we are trying to say with these abilities. It is not enough, to just have dexterity with media—one must have something to say…the Why’s & What’s. Why am I interested in this subject, what do I want others to know, what are my feelings that I am trying to express. The Why’s & What’s are limitless and unique for each artist…and they change as we mature as people, as we experience the joys and sorrows of human life.’
