Donna Bland is a nationally known painter.  She has received numerous awards and has studied in New York, California, Georgia, and Texas. Donna has been an artist all of her life.  “I love to learn, create and share what I have experienced with others. Whether painting for someone with a special request, leading a workshop, or being outdoors….my passion is creating a painting that reminds someone of a special moment, place or person in their lives.  I look forward to seeing you and creating art together.” – Donna Bland

Fine Artist Donna Bland will bring her artistic abilities and teaching talents to the AKMA Classroom this April.  In this 3-Day Workshop, Donna will provide step by step demos that will allow each student to create and complete a vibrant portrait from a photo each day of the 3-day workshop. The workshop will include learning to use shadow and light in a studio painting as well as extra study with line, shape, value, color, and edges.  Donna creates a relaxed, pleasant environment to enhance the learning experience and offers professional, constructive, hands-on assistance at your easel.
