What can your colored pencils do?

To find out, attend this month’s Placerville Arts Association meeting on Sunday, March 17.

The group’s very special guest this month is Karen Lilly. She will be demonstrating how to convert a lowly gourd into a one-of-a-kind, prized art piece.

The meeting is held at the El Dorado Senior Center, 935 Spring St. in Placerville. All ages are welcome and cordially invited. Art knows no age.

Lilly’s earliest memories center around drawing, painting or coloring. A California native, she took a gourd crafting class, during which she fell in love with them.

She had already been working for years with colored pencils. It suddenly came to her —“Why not use my newly cleaned gourd as a canvas and take advantage of all its irregularities and quirk.” So began her gourd journey.

Since honing her skills with colored pencils and gourds, Lilly has become well-known for this unique artistic specialty.

Her work has been accepted into Explore This. 4.3.2.1. Experimental Colored Pencil Exhibitions, and international competitions over the years. Her work also appears in Colored Pencil Explorations.

Collectors can find Lilly’s works at shows in Homewood, Northstar-at Tahoe, Mammoth Lakes and Placerville’s Gold Country Artists Gallery on Main Street.

This will be a very unique 3-D demonstration by Lilly.

Placerville Arts Association strives to nurture a love for the creation of art and the enjoyment of art for art’s sake. Whether you are an art enthusiast, or an experienced artist, or a beginner, PAA hopes that its guest artists and speakers will increase the love of art in you and in the community.

Lilly’s 3-D demonstration will begin after a short PAA business meeting that begins at 1:30 p.m. After a short refreshment and meet and greet time, the PAA meeting continues to about 3:30 p.m.
