We are pleased to present acrylic artist Sarah HaBa as she creates a large, colorful interior scene, explaining her process as she goes — building up a painting from the drawing phase to a finished work. She’ll review techniques to make a painting cohesive and “really sing” and discuss how her acrylic paints differ from other mediums, the benefits of the brand of paint, the brushes, and how the surface painted on matters.
Her figurative and interior paintings explore the physical space of home over-filled by emotion— held in space by walls, corners, floors, and the flat emptiness]of the ceiling. The off-kilter compositions are expressions of conflicting thought and feeling. Color is defined by shadow, scattered by light, and is often mixed on the canvas.
New Hours: Doors Open at 6:30. Please wait outside while we set up for the artist.
We are now setting up and putting away our own tables and chairs. Come a little early or stay a little later, lift and place.
Free and open to the public. We meet each second Monday, February – November, in the Garden Room, El Cerrito Community Center, 7007 Moeser Lane.
