Fine Art by Kristine Wyler

Kristine Wyler is an artist living in North Canton, Ohio. She feels blessed to be given the opportunity to present artwork through this newly designed website. Kristine Wyler is happy to offer a new section entitled, "ART LESSONS". This will provide her the opportunity to share the art lessons learned through her varied years!!!

The year 2011 is proving to be a time when there are numerous opportunities to display artwork work. The acrylic painting, The Edge of My Dreams, is on display in the beautiful reception area of the Ohio Laser & Wellness Center, Ltd, in Canton, Ohio. Kris' wildlife painting, "Through the Mist," appeared in the 69th Annual May Show at the North Canton Little Art Gallery. Considering the small display area and the great number of paintings submitted, it is an honor to be selected for the May Show. Kris also displayed the oil painting, "Quiet Morning" at Gallery 6000, Kent State University at Stark. The show is entitled, "Legacy of the Masters: Frank Dale and His Students. Kris also was one of the 12 Artists featured in the "Art from the Salon" in Gallery 6000 and-last but not least--shared her artwork at a solo show at the Fountain Gallery in the Johnson Center at Malone University.

Edge of my Dreams Kris is a member of the adjunct faculty in the Department for Professional Development in the School of Education for Malone University Canton, Ohio.
She is continuing the tradition of sharing her expertise with art teachers throughout NE Ohio. During the summer of 2013, Kris taught two workshops. The first workshop was Acrylic Painting-Fostering Creativity in the Classroom which was designed to explore a vast array of multimedia applications for paints, gels, textures, mediums, and finishes. The workshop pushed the boundaries of creativity. Participants not only created artwork that focuses on individual expression but also had fun learning and using new techniques, products, and tools. A second workshop, Oil Painting-The Flemish Technique, was designed to explore the Flemish method of Van Eyck and others who followed. Using authentic Renaissance materials, students created oil paintings that had a deep gloss and smooth finish incorporating a full range of values. They learned the effect colors have on one another when applied in thin glazes using resins, beeswax, and Larch turpentine. Workshop participants comments on how surprised they were at how much they enjoyed the workshop and were amazed at the quality of their paintings. The best compliment of all was that they had fun and would take whatever class or workshop Kristine Wyler offered. The best compliment a teacher will ever receive!!

A series of lessons on the Flemish method begins now and will be featured in the "Art Lessons" section of Kris' website.
