Red Barn Studio Museum
June Artist in Residence & Workshop





Nicole Thibodeau will be the Artist-in-Residence Sunday, May 30 to Saturday, June 12 at the Red Barn Studio Museum, 212 S. Main St., Lindsborg. On Saturday, June 5, from 1PM to 3PM Thibodeau will have a “Watercolor Landscape Plein Air Workshop“ at Coronado Heights. Cost: members: $25, nonmembers: $40. Supplies are not provided. Please bring watercolors, watercolor paper, water, brushes, hat, sunblock, snack and insect repellent. Of her art, she says, “It is important to keep painting, no matter what-- no matter the voices of societal expectation, the thoughts of cost, or a rationality that strives to undue creative endeavors. The most valuable commodity an artist can be given is time. Time creates the possibility to learn new skills, to perceive, and to practice. I know I will be drawn to create art about nature that originates from observation and ends in the realm of fantasy and symbolism. The early light illuminates colors more clearly before the heat of the day and I often find myself out to catch this beautiful light. I will be experimenting with words and images, which will likely take the shape of watercolor illustrations for children’s books.” Nicole Thibodeau grew up immersed in the natural beauty of Taos, New Mexico. As the daughter of painter Rich Thibodeau and actor Karen Thibodeau, creativity was intertwined with daily life. She painted her way through a BA in Studio Art (Bethany College) and an MFA (Fort Hays State University). She also pursued her love of writing with an MA in English (FHSU). Further studies took her to the Art Student’s League (New York), Studio Art Centers International (Italy), and Lacoste School of the Arts (France). Currently, she lives in Hays, Kansas, where she paints in her studio and, also, designs activities for teens at Hays Public Library. Her work is featured at the Art Space Gallery (Marquette, KS), Goodland Carnegie Arts Center, The Deines Cultural Center, and The Hays Arts Center.  Short essays and poetry can be found on her blog, The Creative Lexicon. She is grateful for the comradery of all those who share in the creative journey.
