Kelli May-Krenz – Painting in Layers: Finding Warrior Spirits

Kelli May-Krenz
Painting in Layers: Finding Warrior Spirits
Friday 21 April
One Day Workshop


Starting with a canvas board, plywood or any panel you choose then finding your spirit, soul stirrings and uncovering more textures painting with me. I use unconventional methods of layering papers, paints, and sanding, scraping away then repeating. I have found the layers tell stories and start to show you a warrior strong spirit. You cannot make mistakes here. This is all about finding more of you. It is a fun messy spirit filled journey.

I will provide samples of my art and illustrations for inspiration. I will also have list and conversation that will get you to dig deep inside and start seeing your stories come to life. You will leave with a finished painting.



  • bring bits of vintage papers, old book pages, words you love, pictures that make you feel something, scrapbooking paper. any paper works great.
  • favorite colors of paint if you have some
  • favorite paint brush large and small
  • scissors
  • canvas board or plywood (no larger then 11×14”)

I will have kits of fun vintage papers available for sale. I will also have treat bags available for students. I am known for creating darling treat bags. You will leave this class with a finished painting. It is such a joy watching your spirits come to life.

I love this class.
Great for beginners as well as advanced artists.
