Artwork, “Choose Your Own Adventure” by Cat Pope

Dive back in the classroom this fall with ESAC’s newest ongoing workshop series!

Join professional artist Cat Pope in this foundational painting series. Draw upon art history, materials and design to learn what makes an exceptional painting from concept to completion – then choose to BREAK all the rules!

Each series will have a monthly theme using principles of art and design, with a major focus on composition, value, and color harmony. The last week in the series students will have creative freedom – bring a personal piece to work on with instructor assistance and gentle critique.

This workshop series is designed for artists of all levels who wish to push themselves to their greatest artistic ability. Instructor demonstrations and exercises will be completed in oil, however students may bring any painting medium of their choice.

Series III:

Simple elements created for extraordinary results. Explore Monet’s work and how we can employ the same methods in our own painting journey. Lots of class exercise and group discussion packed into this series (4 weeks: November 12, 19, December 3, 10)

“As an artist I cherish adventure, and I am continually enchanted by color and its power to translate atmosphere.  My work explores the coastal lifestyle, past and present, with the soul of a simpler, romanticized era. Industries of travel and entertainment may change, but nostalgia never grows old.”


Cat Pope (b. 1989) is an artist madly in love with color relationships, dramatic energy, and confident brushwork. Her childhood in Clearwater, Florida instilled in her a love for the natural landscape and the unique sense of light found along the Gulf Coast.

Cat’s work in oil depicts the coastal South using post-impressionist and contemporary realist techniques. Layers of color, bold shapes, and manipulation of surface texture illustrate a fascination with the nature of the medium itself and its rapturous capacity for memory.


Cat currently lives and works from her studio in Mobile, Alabama. When not in the midst of creating, Cat enjoys teaching workshops and encouraging others to chase after inspiration in all of their creative pursuits. Her works have been collected throughout the United States.
