jane slivka: freedom of acrylics
Jane Slivka is back for another amazing workshop. Jane’s love of life bubbles up and over through her motivational artistry approach, as she teaches students to just relax and have a good time. They truly enjoy her outlook and the foundation of her methodology, where she enables the connection between the artist and their art to flow openly without reservation. Jane demonstrates and vividly describes to her students how to utilize color with confidence.
As a student, you can look forward to painting still life, landscapes, figures, and if time permits, you might even explore the exciting form of abstraction. Jane's students leave with more than a few canvases in hand; they leave with a sense of accomplishment, a new appreciation for their own abilities and the motivation to keep on painting
Painter, Teacher, Gallerist
Originally, Jane mastered the artistry of watercolor while she attended Endicott Junior College in Boston, Massachusetts. She later graduated from Ohio University with a degree in Art Education. Studying for a semester in Florence, Italy, she gleaned much inspiration from the richness of the historical art and gorgeous landscapes.
One day, Jane decided to try acrylics, and she felt absolutely liberated by the strong colors and ability to layer thick textures of paint! From that moment forward she has been exploring, teaching, and motivating others to express artistically through painting with acrylics.
Jane Slivka now discovers new inspirations for her portfolio every day at the beaches in sunny Florida, from her love of people and culture, and through the play of shadow and light on old buildings. A truly gifted artist, she brings paint to life with ease and elegance. For the latest off the easel, come visit her at her studio gallery in historic downtown Mount Dora, Florida!
