Workshops & Events

Students love finger painting workshops. They open the door to exploring your creative side. The approach to learning how to paint with just your fingers is one of the most freeing, as it eliminates the need for tools to create your work of art.  Kimberly offers a variety of options in oil and acrylic.  These workshops are open to beginners and beyond. You can sign up for in person or online workshops or reserve time in a private lessons.   If you prefer to work at your own pace. Books and online tutorials are available as well.

"In a culture full of stress and chaos, painting is my way of encouraging people to stop, pause, and enjoy the moment. When you walk into a room and see one of my vibrant landscapes, I hope you’ll want to linger in front of it. Following the pathway to a better place where joy, happiness, and positive energy await you."

- Kimberly Adams

Living on Bainbridge Island, I draw inspiration exploring the island. As I walk, I envision capturing the colors around me on the canvas, aiming to re-imagine the essence of that moment. Through color, I strive to evoke the emotions and feeling that's experienced in nature. 


I would describe my style as modern contemporary with a hint of impressionistic, as I feel a kinship with the original masters, like Claude Monet, Emily Carr, Gustav Klimt, Alphonse Mucha, and others. Appreciating the confidence to use color to express feeling.  I apply daubs of creamy, richly pigmented oil paint to every canvas, allowing the pure, vivid colors to visually blend on the surface and in the viewer’s eye.


I’ve added a little twist to my creative process: Painting only with my fingertips and a few unconventional tools. This gives me more control over how I apply and move the paint.  You will often find a pathway in my paintings, to remind us that life is never a straight and narrow path, that we can lean into the adventure of finding the positive in every turn. I trust that all of you will see the joy and energy I feel when I’m painting come through my collection of work.
