the Euclid Art Association...
Our next monthly meeting is Monday,
March 5, 2018 at 7:00pm in Fellowship Hall of East
Shore United Methodist Church, 23002 Lake Shore Blvd.,
Euclid. Guests are welcome for a $3.00 donation.
At this meeting we are featuring a unique and very
interesting presentation by Holly Queen Biss, a
registered, board certified art therapist and certified
thanatologist (one who studies
especially in its
aspects). She will
present The Impact of Art Therapy and will touch
upon The Value of Creating Art as You Age.
Holly graduated from Ursuline College’s Counseling and
Art Therapy program and has practiced art therapy for
over 20 years. Inspired and trained by the late
Tom Kitwood (a pioneer in the field of dementia care),
she has concentrated on using art in person-centered
care of individuals and families living with dementia
and terminal illnesses.
We thank our February demonstrator,
Victoria Wagner, for a fantastic evening of art!
Close to 30 members and guests sat in quiet amazement as
we watched Victoria demonstrate “Portraiture
Techniques in Oil”. Victoria has been teaching
art for 25 years, but she’s been painting for 50!
Even though Victoria uses every kind of medium in her
artwork, her favorite is definitely oil. Her
objective for the evening was to complete an oil
portrait in an hour. Victoria selected member,
Kelley Davis, from the audience as her model.
As Kelley’s likeness came alive on the canvas, Victoria
gave us many interesting tips. An hour and a half
later, the beautiful painting of Kelley was done!...what
an amazing likeness. Victoria graciously gave
Kelley the finished portrait. Thank you, Victoria
and Kelly! For tips, pictures, and more
