Course Description

In this class, students will learn about the life and history of the famous painter Vincent Van Gogh. Through examples, they will study the artist's landscapes, still lifes, portraits and self-portraits, all of which are characterized by bold colors and dramatic brushwork. Using acrylics and other mediums, students will be inspired to create their own interpretations of the artist’s works.

About the Instructor

Cindy Neinast-Gray has been an artist her entire life. Beginning early at two years old (red-crayon line-drawing on the white hallway walls of a new house), art has been an integral part of her world.

Gray received a Bachelor of Environmental Design from the School of Architecture at Texas A&M University. Her careers have always been art-related, having been a graphic artist, the owner and designer of a children’s clothing line, a “fun art” instructor, and a full-time, professional artist.

Cindy lives in Dallas, Texas, with her family and shares her studio with her two Jack Russell terriers, Willy and Kona. Her paintings hang in private collectors’ residences and commercial spaces, both nationally and internationally. Locally, Gray has art in permanent collections at the NYLO Dallas Southside hotel and the McKinney Performing Arts Center.
