February 24th - Jackie Afram
Jackie was born and reared in Southern Californiat and had art classes most of her elementary and high school years. But when she went to college she had only one art class from a professor who taught his students to view their art in terns of its success and described the student’s work in such a way they rarely could tell whether he liked them or not. After College, Jackie moved to Washington, DC and started working for the federak government and one of her collegues urged her to join an oil painting class and she has been an oil painter ever since. She is a member of the Arlington Artists
Alliance and their Gallery Underground.
Jackie’s art comes from her life experiences and she loves working from photos of friend and family. She also draws inspiration from museum collections and enjoys trying to detect the artist’s special technique. She approaches each painting with a style she believes is best suited to the subject. She loves to try different techniques and is recently enjoying oil bars and oil markers which she will be talking about and demonstrating their use in her paintings at the McLean Art Society on Friday, Feb 24 at the McLean Community Center from 11AM to noon. This presentation is free and open to the public.
