Artists are born, but technique is learned.

Kate Wood has instructed beginning, intermediate and advanced students for two decades. That’s at least 5000 art classes – with hundreds of thankful students. Kate specializes in the oil-painting techniques of the great masters, including realistic lighting and shading; brush finesse; the grid method; advanced color mixing; and more.

Kate’s students work at their own pace and paint their own subjects. A veteran instructor at Alizarin Crimson Gallery, Kate Wood is also the master art conservator at Alchemy Fine Art Restorers, as well as the proud friend of an art-loving Yorkshire Terrier named Ben.

Award Winning Results

Over the last decade, her students have won international contests, sold countless paintings, and gotten into exclusive gallery shows. That’s why so many students continue taking her class year after year – and why space has always been at a premium.

For example, in 2011, Jonna Polsky won third prize in a contest sponsored by the renowed magazine International Artist. More recently, in 2015, three of Kate’s students were selected for inclusion in the “2015 Helping People Succeed Calendar” and honored during a gala event held at the Floridian Resort Hotel. Numerous other students have had solo shows at galleries and of course, much of the student art produced is displayed at Alizarin Crimson Studio.

In January 2016, the TCPalm news featured one of Kate’s students, 97-year-old Verna Fenelon, in a profile piece. And three of Kate’s current students were featured in the 2016 Art for Living Calendar (in support of Helping People Succeed and underwritten by Seacoast Bank).
