Kim Casebeer

AGL welcomes Kim Casebeer to Baton Rouge as the judge and juror of the 53rd River Road Show, a national exhibit held at the Louisiana State Archives, sponsored by the Art Guild of Louisiana. In conjunction with judging the River Road Show, Kim will present a three day workshop at the Studio in the Park.

Kim Casebeer was born and raised in Kansas and draws her inspiration from the simplicity of the Flint Hills area of wide open ranch land. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from Kansas State University in 1992. Kim travels to paint and teach throughout the United States. She is a signature member of the Pastel Society, Oil Painters of America, and has won numerous awards in national, invitational, and museum exhibits.

Kim has work in many private, corporate, and museum collections throughout the United States and is represented by galleries in Kansas, Arizona, Oklahoma, Wyoming, and New Mexico. To learn more about Kim and see her award winning artwork, visit her website at


In this studio workshop, we practice studying color in the landscape.  Maybe you’ve heard this before, “Value does all the work while color gets all the credit.” So true! Yes, we will study color, but to do so, we HAVE to first put the values (the lightness or darkness of a color) to work. Thumbnails are your friend and we will use them a lot. Once we’ve worked through our grayscale thumbnails, we start working in color by asking questions. What type of palette will work for the painting?  Should the painting be saturated or gray? Warm or cool? Students will work through many color studies to practice studying color.

Kim will offer individual attention at the easel during the workshop. At the end of the workshop, there will be a group discussion of the work completed during the workshop.
