Kirah Van Sickle -- Wilmington, NC
Golden Artist Colors, Inc. Golden Artist Kirah Van Sickle Kirah Van Sickle is an artist and adventurer at heart. Her early years set a foundation for travel, exploration and art study from the age of 6. Combining her love of science and art, Kirah graduated from Duke University with dual majors in Biology and Art and Art History. This led to a Master's of Science in Medical Illustration from the Medical College of Georgia. For eighteen years she directed Animania, LLC, her creative consulting company. She returned to visual art study and received her Master's of Fine Art - Painting from the Academy of Art University. Kirah's strength is her versatility and confidence in all mediums and styles. At her core is an understanding and practice in design and art fundamentals that spans the spectrum from representational to contemporary abstract and mixed media processes. Kirah's works are deeply personal expressions of her memories and dreams. Inspired by a relationship to nature, you will often find Kirah working en plein air. Her mixed media works combine ephemera within acrylic glazes on vast color fields, alluding to themes of liminality and the metaphorical journey across uncharted seas. In addition to her studio practice, Kirah teaches her custom series of drawing, painting, plein air and mixed media courses through museums schools and local art associations, directed to both beginner and seasoned artists. Kirah brings a rich insight in traditional and contemporary processes to her workshop offerings.

With an approach based on fundamentals of values, composition and color, Kirah will introduce students to exercises and techniques that build brush confidence and achieve bold, fresh and loose results. Inspired by Impressionist and Post-Impressionist stylings, students will gain a better understanding of working with color temperature, complimentary color schemes, "broken color" and the dramatic impact in building contrast and dynamic landscape compositions. Both rural and urban subjects will be addressed, using the notan to establish value planes, and color mixing savy. Kirah will combine instructor demonstrations, extensive reference material and personal guidance directed to the individual artist's goals and process. Let's enjoy exploring the amazing sights and flavors…and all that color that is Provence! Kirah is a multifaceted artist and seasoned instructor in both plein air and studio practices.
