Guest Artist: Charlotte Severin – Watercolor on Upo
Award-winning Pleasanton artist Charlotte Severin will share her joy & expertise with yupo paper for the March 12 PAL/LAA Meeting.
Having spent a week in Yosemite last spring during the waterfall season, Charlotte plans to demo a full sheet (26×40) painting of Yosemite Falls. She will share a variety of experimental techniques on yupo with which all viewers will want to experiment.
Our Meetings are Always Open & Free to the Public. Bring a Friend.
An inspired teacher for over 30 years, Charlotte has taught classical watercolor, Oriental brush painting and drawing in San Francisco Bay Area schools, both public and private. Also serving as “Artist in Residence” in many schools, she has enjoyed lighting the spark of creativity in thousands of children and adults, teaching weekly classes in watercolor for 21 years for the City of Pleasanton’s Civic Arts Program, enhancing students awareness and creating a new vision for all of life. Having been honored with over forty one person shows, Charlotte is a signature member of the California Watercolor Association, charter member and past president of the Pleasanton Art League, founding president of the Pleasanton Cultural Arts Council and founder of the PCAC “Arts in the Schools Program.”
Charlotte is currently celebrating her 25th year of teaching intermediate & advanced classes which are now being taught at the Firehouse Art Center. There will be a 25th Anniversary Art Exhibit of students’ work at the Pleasanton Senior Center from April 30 to May 11. The public will want to mark their calendars for April 30, 7:00 to 9:00 for the Reception. Everyone is invited.
