Two-day Yupo workshop

Submitted By Sachie Johns

Grace Rankin, an award-winning and prominent artist and teacher, will help you explore watercolor painting on the impossible, improbable synthetic surface known as Yupo on Saturday and Sunday, January 21 and 22 from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. at the Fremont Art Centre, located at 37695 Niles Boulevard in Fremont (corner of J Street). The cost is $120 for FAA members, $150 for non-members.

Enjoy the unpredictability and "happy accidents" working on this synthetic paper as well as learn some ways to control your water media. Yupo papers will be available at cost. Bring basic watercolor supplies. A list of additional supplies required will be available at the FAA Centre. Bring your own lunch or dine at one of the fine local eateries (all walking distance). Space is limited and registration is required. Sign up now at the Centre or call (510) 792-0905, or contact the artist at
