Kathleen Kornprobst

The painter, Kathy Kornprobst, has been known for many years throughout the region of Ingolstadt, Germany. She was born in the USA and resides in Ingolstadt. After completing her art studies in London, England and Nuremberg, Germany, she has worked as a lecturer for the Volkshochschule Ingolstadt – Community College – for over 20 years. Further art instruction includes Seminars at the Gallery Weihergut, Salzburg, Austria with Professor Joseph Zenzmaier and Professor Joze Ciuha from Slovania, along with numerous teaching-training seminars and workshops in Munich, Germany.

In addition, she teaches seminars in Europe and abroad. Kathy Kornprobst has successfully presented her water colors, oil paintings, drawing and sculptures in many solo exhibitions as well as annual group exhibitions along with other accomplished artists at Haus der Kunst in Munich, Germany.

Kornprobst's watercolor painting group has been together for 20 years with individual participants having attended from six months to 20 years. The fun of learning and painting, whether in theory or practice, is Kathy's priority. Kathy's personal goal as an instructor is to share the joy of painting as well as provide more knowledge of art history, techniques, and basic theory. Another aspect of Kathy's instruction is the importance of developing each individual's personal signature.

Kathy states:

"For me there is nothing worse than students who only paint like the instructor rather than maintain and develop their own style."
