Barbara Cordill of Overland Park, and Barbara O’Leary of Shawnee, will be the Artists in Residence at the Red Barn Studio Museum Oct. 2-16.
During O’Leary’s residency, she will be “working on a couple of projects: disappearing farms and barns, including my family’s farms, and currently expanding parks and green spaces which account for all of my new plein air work.” She is an instructor, teaching “Painter’s Palette” and “Plein Air” classes as well as participating in one of the shows and judging in the other show.
O’Leary will be teaching two plein air classes, both for students ages 14 and up. Cost the classes will be $50 for Raymer Society members and $60 for non-members. The cost includes both classes. Please bring your own sketch books and supplies, paints, or pencils.

- October 15, 1-4p.m.: Plein Air 2

Cordill’s art composed with paper, canvas or fiber, and “provides satisfaction and tranquility in my daily life.” She works in pencil, pen and ink, oil, watercolor, and fiber. “The Red Barn Studio residency will provide me the opportunity to further concentrate on design and color and applying that in my paintings. Aspiring to become more accomplished in this, I feel the solitude of the residency, without the distractions of everyday life will help me achieve this,” says Cordill.
