Susiehyer Conducts Painting Demonstration for PaintAmerica
On Sunday, June 29th, nationally recognized oil painter Susiehyer conducted a painting demonstration and seminar for PaintAmerica at the Maner Conference Center in Topeka, Kansas. Susie was in Topeka as a juror for the 2008 Paint the Parks competition, and agreed to conduct the demonstration as part of PaintAmerica's education mission.
Twice each year, as PaintAmerica national competitions are judged, one of the jurors agrees to provide a seminar for interested artists. Group size is kept small so that each attendee is assured of an up-close, intimate session with the instructor. Susie focused her demonstration on creating a better painting by focusing on strong shape and value structures in the early stages of the painting. We thank Susie for agreeing to provide this motivational and insightful demonstration!
