Welcome to Community Arts Association - Celebrating 50 Years of Service to the Art Community

Our May demonstration will be given by Arlene Steinberg, a world renowned colored pencil artist and author of "Masterful Color". Her pioneering use of the Icarus Board had resulted in work that resembles paint more that pencil, but allows for meticulous detail that would otherwise be difficult to achieve. Focusing mostly on still life, she applies layer upon layer of colored pencil to produce rich, saturated color with a full range of values. Each of her paintings is a treasure trove of detail, surprise elements, a little whimsy and remarkable realism. Visit her website, www.arlenesteinberg.com, to learn more about her and view her paintings.
