May General Meeting

Tuesday May 12, 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

May 12: Lana Privatera. Lana Privatera is known for her luminous watercolors full of rich detail. She feels a special connection to history, and often depicts historical buildings or arrangements of treasured antiques. Lana is originally from Spain, where she studied Fashion Design and Art History. Her highly realistic watercolor paintings have been accepted and exhibited in numerous competitions, often winning top awards, so it is surprising to learn that her watercolor skills are largely self-taught. Now she passes on her acquired knowledge as an art educator She is currently an instructor at the Wallkill River School of Art and conducts Realistic Watercolor workshops in the USA and internationally. You can preview her excellent and straightforward teaching methods on her website, which features several step-by-step demonstrations.
