Artist/Instructor:  Jennifer Koury
$36 members/ $46 not-yet members

Paint with bold colors, bright shapes and patterned forms.  Influenced by Henri Matisse’s style of flat features, colorful patterns, and bold backgrounds, participants will paint a portrait in the style of Matisse.   Select objects that have a significant interpretation to personify the personal character of the person selected for your portrait.  Please bring a detailed personal photograph for reference and photographs of objects you might choose to include.  Feel free to bring sketches.

Jennifer Koury, a watercolorist, delights in both the natural world's play of light and color on forms, and watercolor's whimsical properties: color bleeding, reticulation and natural paint sediments.  Koury has enjoyed a rewarding career as a dedicated painter and freelance illustrator.  She is published in both children's and adult based books. Her work is featured at George Washington's Mount Vernon and Yuma Regional Medical Center, Arizona.  After graduating from Virginia Commonwealth University in Painting and Printmaking, Koury continued her studies to graduate from the Art Center College of Design, California.  She resides with her family in Buffalo and is inspired by the natural beauty of Western New York.
