Master artist David Lobenberg will speak in Jackson
Sacramento artist David Lobenberg will be the guest speaker demonstrating "The Six Universal Skill Sets of Drawings" at the next Amador Artists Association meeting on October 10, 7 p.m. at the Amador Senior Center, 229 New York Ranch Road in Jackson. The public is welcome to attend this free event. According to many artists within the organization, drawing is an important basis that artists must learn.
"It's not rocket science," said artist David Lobenberg when talking about how to draw. "I've broken it down into simple skill sets."
If the demonstration is received well, he plans to follow it up with a workshop so artists can try their hand at his technique. Lobenberg is known for his paintings in both watercolor and acrylic. He was commissioned to paint for California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, professional baseball players Barry Zito and Nick Swisher, The Sacramento Kings, Chris Webber and Vlade Divac, and KVIE's Huell Howser and Rob on the Road among others.
David Lobenberg was commissioned to paint this portrait of Chris Webber presented when the Sacramento Kings retired Webber's Jersey. Lobenberg will demonstrate drawing techniques at the Amador Artist Association Meeting on October 10, 7 p.m. at the Jackson Senior Center.
Lobenberg has a Master's Degree in Fine Art from UCLA and has taught art at Sacramento City College for the past 12 years. His DVD "Portrait Painting in Paynes Gray" is endorsed by Nick Simmons, an internationally renown watercolor artist and he has written an article on "On-the-go Ink and Wash Sketching" for Artist's Magazine. He has also painted for the United States Air Force Thunderbirds Association, The Amgen Tour of California (commemorative painting and prints for the bicycle race), the IMAX Corporation, among others and was winner of the SureWest Telephone Directory Cover Contest. Lobenberg was also a Juror and a contributing "Master Artist" at this year's KVIE Art Gala and Auction last week.
For over 30 years the Amador County Art Association has provided support and information for artists by promoting and encouraging the production, cultivation and appreciation of the visual arts. The association provides scholarships to art students and works with the Arts Council to put artists in the schools. For more information about this event call Leslie 209-296-3750.
