*Hidden Adventures in Oil Painting


Instructor: Kathleen Durham

Kathleen Durham, born in rural Pennsylvania attended a one room school house, and later, a small town high school. As a small child she began copying her coloring books, learning to draw and paint any way she could. As a teenager, there were some art classes in school, but no painting class.


Then one glorious day when her children were in grade school, Adult Education started at their school. They came home with the brochure, she was thrilled to see, "Oil Painting Class!" Kathleen was the first to sign up! She studied with Jack Morton, in Land O' Lakes, Florida, for six years, enjoying every minute of it.


Kathleen's family then moved to New Jersey. After several years of Adult Education Classes, she discovered a well known New Jersey artist/teacher, Eleanor Morehouse, and studied with her for seven years. Kathleen's paintings are on display in private collections throughout the United States, and in galleries listed on her website.


Kathleen and her husband have traveled extensively, and she paints from her own photography, as well as from her clients favorite photos. She paints pet portraits, horses, house portraits, buildings, landscapes, seascapes, gardens, floral's, or whatever is requested.


Kathleen began teaching in the New Jersey Adult Education Program, and also gave private lessons. Having moved back to Florida after her husband retired, she is teaching several art classes and showing her work in many venues. Kathleen has won many awards and has been a member of several art organizations, but the most rewarding is to share her talent with other and to help them see the world through an artist eye.
