The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Kennesaw State University is introducing a new class called “Painting on Yupo.”
The relatively new watercolor painting surface, Yupo, was originally designed for commercial printing applications. The extremely smooth, nonpaper surface is made from polypropylene (plastic) pellets as opposed to trees. This allows the paint to be easily removed and manipulated because it does not penetrate the surface.
The course is highly recommended to anyone from beginners to seasoned artists interested in loosening up and experimenting with an exciting new surface.
Painting on Yupo starts Jan. 29 and will meet on eight consecutive Wednesdays from 9 a.m. to noon at the KSU Center. For more information or to register, call (770) 499-3340 or visit
