& LAA General Meeting
Oil Painting Demonstration with Engela Olivier-Wilson
Monday, May 20, 7:30 p.m.
Cultural Arts Building,
4455 Black Ave., Pleasanton, CA
Olivier-Wilson will present a demonstration of how to create a representational
painting of a California poppy fast and accurately in oils. This is your
chance, in real time, to watch an oil painter paint a good-sized realistic
floral themed painting in under two hours from start to finish.
She plans, as she demonstrates, to talk about her own journey and work
as a fine artist and muralist in a fun and engaging way. She will also
tell you about her recent accomplishments on The Food Network as a Hollywood
Scenic Artist and her recent exhibition in the Harrington Gallery with
William Hackett and Matt Nylander.
Finally, Engela will also show you some outstanding, mind-blowing drawings
created by her young students and explain how we as artists can have
such a fantastic, positive impact on young children to also embrace and
enjoy art making in an excellent way.
