FALLBROOK–Artist Susan De’Armond will be the featured demonstrator at Fallbrook Art Association’s general meeting on September 10.
Winner of top awards in juried shows, De’Armond became an admirer of Impressionist painters while pursuing her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Interior Design. The freshness of their work sparked her imagination. A chance encounter with the Plein Air Artists of Riverside was a turning point. Their shared passion for capturing the Southern California ambiance was enough to get her hooked on plein air. She continues to explore various techniques from other fine artists while honing her own style. Working in watercolor and oil, De’Armond has sought out instruction from Frank Eber, Fealing Lin, Mel Stabin, Tom Fong and Thomas Schaller. She continues to explore various techniques as she hones her own style.
Fallbrook Art Association meets on the 2nd Thursday of the month, September through June. The general meetings are held at the Fallbrook School of the Arts, at 310 E. Alvarado, and are open to the public.
FAA members are welcome to bring in one or two “paintings in progress” for a session with the featured artist demonstrator who will give suggestions for possible improvements. Refreshments will be served at 6:15 p.m., before a brief general meeting at 6:30 p.m., followed by the demonstration, which ends at 8:00 p.m. Each demonstrator offers a workshop the following Sunday at the same location.
