No LSD required.

MARCH ~ PLEIN AIR ~ The weather might be good for another foray outside. How about the Phoenix Zoo?

DEMONSTRATOR

May, 2019 

Ann Osgood
Mixed Media 

Artist Ann Osgood will demonstrate using gold and silver leaf with mixed mediums at our May meeting.

Ann graduated from the University of Hawaii with a BFA in drawing and painting.  She taught art at Central Arizona College and art K-12 for the Deer Valley School District.  Ann also designed and teaches art online courses for the Deer Valley School District.    She also has her own art studio called Utopia Art Studio.  Ann is a juried member of the Arizona Artists’ Guild and the Arizona Art Alliance.  She has a long list of awards and exhibits as well as selected commissions from the City of Glendale Arts Council; AZ North Mountain Visitors Center, City of Phoenix; Lake Pleasant Education Center, City of Peoria; Architects Purchase, Paseo Hills Elementary School, Phoenix, AZ.

As Ann states on her Web site, she works primarily in acrylics as they allow her to work quickly, and she enjoys how she can lay color upon color without disturbing what came before.  She may plan the layers of color in a purposeful way so that contrasting colors meet and stimulate each other.  This helps to give her a sense of the luminous quality of light.  Ann sees the endless relationships that can be established with color.
