Local painter is October artist-in-residence


Local artist Kathy Waldo is the October artist-in-residence at the Cedarburg Cultural Center.

Waldo is a self-taught artist who also enjoys taking local art classes.  She became an artist later in life after realizing one spring morning that she needed to create by painting.

She uses cold wax, oils, acrylics, mixed media and alcohol inks in her work and says her love of learning and testing the limits of each medium has been her muse. Most recently she has focused on alcohol ink paintings.

“Whenever I go into my studio, I feel a sense of calm. I consider making art an escape for myself,” Waldo said. “The colors I use express my feelings that day. I enjoy making abstract art as it frees my soul.”

Waldo will be at the center from noon to 5 p.m. on Thursdays, Oct. 4, 11, 18 and 25, and on Wednesday, Oct. 24.

She will also host a workshop titled “Midnight Alcohol Inks” from 1 to 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 24.  Participants will learn what alcohol inks are and what makes them unique, as well as how the color wheel  works as they complete a painting using the inks.

The class is for all levels of painters. No experience is necessary.  All supplies are included in the fee of $38 for center members and $45 for nonmembers.

The center is at W62 N546 Washington Ave.
