In the first of a series of art demonstrations, Susan Fleishman will demonstrate painting on Yupo, a synthetic paper that is 100% recyclable, waterproof and tree-free. Yupo is a unique and interesting surface to paint on.  It's a plastic product so the paint sits on top and can be moved around on the surface with some interesting results. Sue will use a variety of brushes, scrapers, rollers and other materials to create different textures and effects with watercolor paints. “I love to try new products and see if I can incorporate them into my art. Yupo captivated me as paint can be moved around on the surface to create interesting textures and patterns, “she says.  Sue teaches a painting class at a senior center with experienced and beginning artists. “Teaching provides me the opportunity to help each artist find their own style and for me to share my love of art.” Sue has exhibited with AGS and other community galleries and recently won an award at the Tower Hill exhibit in Boylston.

In this session, Melissa Maglio will demonstrate the little known medium of painting with oil sticks.  Paint sticks don't dry out, are easy to use, easy to clean up and provide the most luscious colors that always remain vibrant. She will talk about "opening the paint," the best tools to make a variety of textures and show methods of mixing colors directly on the work.  Melissa will demonstrate how to get right in to create beautiful color and vivid expression.  Whether you want light and detailed or heavy and thick, paint sticks are as malleable as clay. Melissa is happiest when creating something whether it is with paint, clay, furniture, fabric or words.  But most of all she has come to love the immediacy, yet low stress approach to painting with sticks. Melissa recently won the People’s Choice award at the sprinkler Factory summer show.

This session is about pounding flowers! Chris Anderson finds that pounding flowers gives her a new creative approach to flower art in a way that preserves their beauty in a different medium such as paper and fabric. She learnt the technique from a fellow AGS member but has brought her own creativity in to the mix. “I love the way the colors flow and play together often in an unexpected manner – very much the way of life!” Chris shows her work at many of the AGS public venues and recently demonstrated her technique last summer at the Sprinkler Factory Gallery in Worcester.
