Kimberly Kelly Santini is an acrylic painter renowned for her color sensibilities and expressive brushwork. With a work ethic that includes more than a decade of daily painting, she has over 1000 pet portraits in private collections around the world. Santini has created imagery for the American Kennel Club and was the official artist of the 2015 Kentucky Derby, among other honors. She is a lively instructor, bringing content built specifically for the artist looking to raise their color IQ while loosening up their brushwork. Students will learn how to work a wet palette system while practicing exercises designed to help them paint what they see, resulting in a heightened understanding of the properties of acrylic paint and a structured approach to color usage (that applies to other media as well).

If the workshop is canceled, all registration money will be returned to the students minus 3% processing fee. The workshop will be rescheduled if possible for both parties.
(Final supplies list will be sent when workshop gets closer. Kimberly is updating the list below)
Composition notebook, pencil/pens, sharpie
Color wheel, 10 step value scale
Water cup, spray bottle, paper towels
Printed magazine or catalogue with uncoated pages
We will be doing exercises and note-taking in our notebook. This notebook is also a great place to complete the longer painting sessions – it’s been my experience that the less precious the materials, the more confident the student. If a student wishes another surface or a larger size, they are welcome to bring a pad of mixed media paper, bristol board or some other smooth surface.
Masterson Sta-Wet Palette System, the larger one with the Materson sponge insert and Masterson palette sheets
Professional grade heavy body acrylic paints I use Golden brand. Acrylics with extended drying time will not work for this particular class. Cadmium free substitutes are welcome.
Cadmium Red Medium
Cadmium Red Dark
Cadmium Yellow Light
Cadmium Yellow Dark
The type of brush is key to getting a strong mark. I prefer Utrecht mangalon synthetics – they have a crisp edge and a bit of spring.
Brush sizes are not universal across all brands; the ones listed below are Utrecht sizes. The brushes I have listed here are roughly under 1”, 3/4”, 1/2” and 1/4” .
Provided brushes are synthetic with a crisp edge and in the above approximate widths, other brands will do.
Flat, size 18
Bright, sizes 16, 12 and 8
