Oil & Acrylic - CHARLOTTE WHARTON

In her workshops throughout New England and the Midwest USA, Charlotte approaches the act of painting in a different way. She strives to give the artist/student not only a rational way to understand the fundamentals of what makes a good painting, the use of value, edges, colour and the construction of the painting but how to convey their own magical qualities in their paintings.

Charlotte is from Worcester, Massachusetts. In addition to being a Copley Master, she is a member of New York's Salmagundi Club and the Pastel Society of America. Among her many awards is the prestigious Grumbacher Gold Medal Award from the Copley Society of Boston
