Placerville Arts Association is bringing in the new year with a very talented guest speaker/demonstrator Connie McLennan.

She will be discussing and demonstrating the art of painting in oil. With each guest speaker, members of PAA say that they find personal inspiration, new insights to the art media and are challenged to return to their easels to press forward in each of their own personal art quests.

The public is invited to join the adventure at the Sunday, Jan. 19 meeting at the El Dorado Senior Center, 935 Spring St. in Placerville. The meeting begins at 1:30 p.m.

McLennan, an exceptional oil artist, grew up in Yreka, a historic mining and lumber community, where she often accompanied her father, a veterinarian, on his out-calls amid the natural beauty of Mt. Shasta and the surrounding countryside.

McLennan graduated from California State University, Sacramento with a degree in journalism, and then spent two years studying illustration at the Academy of Art in San Francisco.

As a freelance illustrator, McLennan completed a wide variety of advertising, institutional and editorial assignments, including the poster for the 2010 California State Fair and 13 children’s books.

After attending her first painting workshop with Craig Nelson in 1994, McLennan continued to attend Nelson’s workshops one week every year for several years.

In 2010, she turned to oil painting full time and was enormously influenced by a series of workshops with well-known impressionist Don Hatfield.

McLennan is a two-time contributor to the U.S. Air Force Art Collection. One of her paintings currently hangs in the State Capitol representing the 1st Senate District the California State Senate Contemporary Art Collection.

The monthly meeting is free and the public (artists and art enthusiasts) are cordially invited to attend.

The demonstration will follow a brief PAA business meeting at 1:30 p.m. Refreshments are served about 2 p.m. and the demonstration follows, concluding about 3:30 p.m.
