Saturday, September 13, 2014 TAG will meet at Progress Park Plaza, 15530 Downey Ave., Paramount, CA. between Somerset and Alondra Blvd’s. Board Meeting at 1:00 P.M. and General meeting and demonstration at 2:00 P.M. Lucille DeThomas will demonstrate for us.
Born in Easton, Pennsylvania, Lucille is a intensive, dedicated artist who won her first award in a city wide competition at age 13. Totally committed to art, she has exhibited in Art Shows throughout the U.S. and has consistently won top awards in oils, watercolor & sculpture. A past Gallery Director, an occasional Judge at art shows, and an aspiring Author, Lucille teaches art at Art Centers in five locales. She was a featured Art Instructor at Sequoia National Park for six years. Always finding beauty and inspiration in her travels, she has hundreds of sketches anxiously waiting to be “brushed into life.”
She paints a variety of subjects using vibrant colors and loose strokes, creating an impressionistic aura, which stimulates the viewer into participating with the scene’s mood and atmosphere. She has demonstrated her spontaneous technique on TV as well as to Art Associations and Teacher’s Groups. Her greatest rewards are awakening the imagination and senses of enthusiastic students to the wonders of light and color. She hopes to capture and motivate an even larger audience to pick up the brush and palette knife. Lucille strongly feels that color communicates to everyone in all languages and the Art is an expression of life’s countenances.
Come join us for a wonderful afternoon.
