Brightwood artist speaks on critiquing

Wyeast Artisans Guild presents artist Claudia Nice


In addition to the many art exhibitions the Wy’east Artisans Guild organizes every month, the guild is holding an event to help community members grow as artists.

On Monday, April 14, the guild will present a free program on art critique, featuring Brightwood artist Claudia Nice.

Nice will make a presentation on what makes a good critique and, most importantly, how to critique your own work. Mingle with artists and learn about positive critique, as she examines several pieces of work.

“Claudia’s relaxed, informative methods are geared to put the beginner at ease and encourage the seasoned artist to new heights,” said Becky Hawley of the Wy’east Artisans Guild.

Nice has judged numerous art competitions and written or contributed to more than 30 books, including “Creating Texture in Pen & Ink With Watercolor.” Her artwork has won awards and is sometimes used in leading art instruction magazines.

For the past 15 years, Nice has traveled across North America for Koh-I-Noor Rapidograph Inc., based in New Jersey, as an art consultant, conducting seminars, workshops and demonstrations at schools, clubs, shops and trade shows.

The April 14 program will begin at 7 p.m. (doors will open at 6:30) at the Clackamas County Bank Theater, 38963 Proctor Blvd. The theater is just west of the bank’s main entrance.
