Cameron University Professor of Art Katherine Liontas-Warren will conduct “Self-Discovery through Drawing,” a workshop for high school teachers at the Oklahoma Arts Institute from October 10-13. During the workshop, Liontas-Warren will demonstrate drawing techniques and will provide one-on-one critique.
“I love working with high school art teachers, as they provide crucial fundamentals and foundations for students who go on to major in art at the university level,” says Liontas-Warren. “Working with fellow educators also gives me the opportunity to learn different techniques that I can apply to my work as an artist and educator.”
Participants will create a variety of drawings through experimentation of compositions while extrapolating elements to create new and unique drawings on a larger scale. Students may work from current/new drawings or sketches pertaining to any subject matter and will have the option to work in an abstract, expressive, or realistic manner.
An award-winning artist, Liontas-Warren joined the Cameron University faculty in 1984. She teaches drawing, watercolor, and printmaking. She was honored with the Oklahoma Governor's Art and Education Award in 2014 and has also been named Artist of the Year by the Paseo Art Association and Artist and Educator of the Year by the Lawton Arts and Humanities Council.
