The Matthews Artists Guild in Matthews, NC, will hold its monthly meeting at the McDowell Arts Center, with a demonstration by Sharron Burns, on Oct. 11, 2016. beginning at 6pm.
Who says a squirrel has to be gray or shells have to be white? Start with some water, add lots of color, move it around, spray more water and let dry. Then, add a few details and “VOILA” a colorful animal emerges and what fun! Watch as Burns shows you how to create wonderful and whimsical paintings that you will enjoy. This is one demo that you don’t want to miss. No matter what your medium you can create a fantastic piece of art.
Burns, a graduate of Christopher Newport University with a degree in Fine Arts, has exhibited with the Silver Brush Society, Charlotte Artists Society, Matthews Artists Guild, the Guild of Charlotte Artists, and Nancy Couick Studios and Gallery in Charlotte. She is described as a contemporary still life painter whose works reflect her love of still life subjects plus crystal and glass and how it diffuses the light and shadows.
