"Charm the eye with intense color, dramatic light and strong design." The Fremont Art Association (FAA) will offer an outstanding watercolor workshop with award-winning artist, Claire SchroevenVerbiest.
A Belgian native who lived in the Congo and in Germany before moving to San Jose, with her husband and two children, SchroevenVerbiest is considered one of the finest watercolor and pastel artists in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Her painting "Haute Cuisine" received the High Winds Medal at the American Watercolor Society's annual exhibition. She is well known for her lively, crisp and truthful depictions of people, landscapes, flowers and objects and for her distinctive use of color. SchroevenVerbiest conducts watercolor and pastel painting classes and workshops throughout the US, Canada and Europe. Triton Museum of Art of Santa Clara displayed 29 of her original pastel paintings and she frequently acts as a juror for local art shows.
SchroevenVerbiest paints because she must and advises that her goal is to create indelible images that transform the ordinary into the extraordinary. Her desire is to represent the absolute truth of what she sees and capture the moment in time that best portrays her subject. Her obsession with charming the eye with intense color, dramatic light and strong design opens the gateway to magnificent results for students and the benefits to you are exceptional. A weekend workshop with Claire promises an abundance of exceptional creative possibilities.
