Workshop Description

In this one day workshop with an award winning artist and instructor, students will review and put into practice the principles of values, edges, color harmony, design and lighting.  It will be informative, challenging and FUN!



Lynda DeGrow Kingsley is a McKinney artist who primarily works in 3-D watercolors combining rusted hand-molded papers on a 2-D plane. She recently graduated with a BFA in studio art, emphasis on watercolors from UNT.

In a search for handmade Christmas gifts last year, Lynda developed an idea to create abstract art tiles after seeing a tile necklace an artist friend made with alcohol inks. The abstract art coasters have been so popular that others have asked her to teach how she designs and constructs these brightly colored, fun,  tiles.

She is the President of the McKinney Art Club and resides in the Historic District with her husband, program director of the network engineering graduate program at SMU, along with their three rescued Basset hounds.
