The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Kennesaw State University will offer “Painting on Yupo” for eight consecutive Wednesdays, starting on Jan. 29, from 9 a.m. to noon at the KSU Center.
The relatively new watercolor painting surface, Yupo, was originally designed for commercial printing applications. The extremely smooth, non-paper surface is made from plastic pellets as opposed to trees. This allows the paint to be easily removed and manipulated because it does not penetrate the surface.
Taught by award-winning watercolorist Elizabeth “Betty” Carr, the course is for beginners to seasoned artists interested in loosening up and experimenting with an exciting new surface.
