About the Instructor:

Chris Kling has worked as a professional artist since earning her BFA in 1978 and has received numerous awards and commissions for her landscapes and portraiture throughout the US and with the Portrait Society of America. For years she has been honored to exhibit in national and international juried shows all over the country and is widely collected. Chris works in oil primarily in a contemporary impressionistic manner through color, composition, value, and application of paint. She also teaches Plein Air and Oil Portraiture in classes and workshops.  Chris owns, with her family, Kling Gallery, Wine & Decor in Stuart, FL and is also represented locally by Palm City Art & Frame, and in St. Augustine in Lost Gallery and Sea Spirits Gallery. Chris states, “Painting, to me, is reaching out to find the common emotional connection between all of us and expressing it in my work.”
