Greg Lewis
'Drawing Tips and Tricks'

work by Dara Halverson, Greg's Non-art major student

OSA's own exhibit installer, Greg Lewis, will be presenting a demo sampling of his drawing tricks and techniques gained over four decades of professional art and design practice.  Whether your art concepts are simple or complex, Greg will share basic drawing methods that will help make your art both time saving and fun. Bring your own drawing (tools and supplies, i.e. pencils, charcoal, pastels, eraser, etc.), as Greg will provide drawing paper. 

Doors open at 6:00pm. The demonstration will be preceded by a short critique session. The demonstration itself starts at 7:00.

All age groups and art experience are encouraged to attend. Light refreshments will be served

David Ross
'Creating Creatures with Character'

David Ross’s painting often includes a whimsical side,  especially in the form of bunnies doing everyday activities in their own special way.  His demo will focus on the use of  bunnies or other creatures to question or highlight human  activity (whether mundane or dramatic) without offending his viewers.  He will also demonstrate his painting style which  incorporates watercolor and ink with thick layers of acrylics and oil pastels. 

David returned to his art after retiring from a career in  education.  He graduated with a B.S. in Art Education from the University of Oregon with a strong emphasis on studio arts (painting, drawing, printmaking).  While earning his Master’s Degree in Education at Portland State University, he spent two years studying graduate-level slab, sculptural and throwing techniques to be able to translate his drawings into works of clay.

Doors open at 10:00am. The demonstration starts at 11:00

Join us for a buffet lunch at 12:15pm
