Glen Knowles will demonstrate watercolor at the Monday, January 21 meeting of the Santa Clarita Artists Association (SCAA). This event is free, open to the public and will take place at 6:30 p.m. at Barnes & Noble, 23630 Valencia Blvd.
Knowles was inspired by the early California Impressionist oil painters and California-style watercolorists, and organized six exhibitions on the history of Southern California art and artists.
“I love the adventure of combining painting and travel and have painted on all seven continents and in the John Muir wilderness of the eastern Sierra Nevada Mountains,” said Knowles.
Renowned for his Plein Air outdoor landscapes, Knowles was a professor of art, having taught over 5,000 students. He invented the ColorWheel palette, a color theory mixing system. “North Light Books Splash 3” called Knowles one of America’s top 105 contemporary watercolor painters. He has an extensive regional, national and international exhibition record, with gold and first place wins. Glen Knowles is a member of the National Academy of Professional Plein Air Painters and a member of the California Art Club.
Attendees are encouraged to arrive early, as the event is expected to be standing room only by 6:30 p.m. Visit www.SantaClaritaArtists.org for more information.
