A watercolor demo by Julie Crouch will be held on Monday, June 17 at 6:30 p.m., during the meeting of the Santa Clarita Artists Association (SCAA).
“When I retired from practicing law in 2002, I started taking watercolor classes and haven’t put my brushes down since,” said Crouch. “I am in love with watercolor! I am enamored with color, especially when the colors mix on the paper in unexpected ways. I rein myself in by paying attention to value, letting the colors flow.”
Crouch teaches watercolor weekly at the City of San Gabriel Community Services Department and at Creative Arts Group in Sierra Madre, Calif. She is on the Mid-Valley Arts League and has also served on the Board of National Watercolor Society. She is a Signature Member of Watercolor West and in Western Colorado Watercolor Society. Her work has been juried into several national exhibitions and she received the Valley Watercolor Society Top Honors Award in their 2012 and 2015 juried exhibitions.
