Nationally Known Artist: Kathleen Conover

Starting a painting with color, texture, gestural marks and layers may seem like “chaos,” but it delivers vital energy that is both fun and intuitive. Great design and composition are the elements that bring “order” to the rich start and turn your painting into an attention-getting and expressive finish.

Beginner or advanced, you are encouraged to discover and explore your unique expression and personal imagery in realism, abstraction, or non-objective.

Nationally Known Artist Workshops

Twice a year, LAC has been able to have Nationally Known Artists travel to Latrobe for a 3 to 5 day workshop. In the past, we have had artists from Alabama, Ohio, New Jersey, New York, Colorado, Maine and Arizona teach a variety of techniques. Anywhere from 10 to 20 students fill the gallery for these workshops. Artists attending the workshops have traveled from Massachusetts, West Virginia, Maryland, New York, Florida & Ohio. In addition, 4 students from the Greater Latrobe Senior High School are chosen in the Spring to attend the workshop under a generous scholarship.

Each year the Latrobe Art Center strives to provide exciting and stimulating workshops taught by nationally known artists from across the United States. In the past we have hosted Frank Francese of Colorado, Janet Rogers of Florida, Margaret Martin of New York, Fred Graff of Ohio, Don Andrews, Jean Uhl Spicer, and Joyce Werwie Perry all of Pittsburgh, and many more! The Latrobe Art Center is honored to have such prestigious artists share their wealth of information and experience with all of our local artists. Please consider broadening your creative talents by attending one of our future workshops.
