Greg Lewis Evening Demo at OSA

Greg Lewis Evening Demo - Free
September 7 at 6pm

OSA's own exhibit installer, Greg Lewis, will be presenting a demo sampling of his drawing tricks and techniques gained over four decades of professional art and design practice.

Whether your art concepts are simple or complex, Greg will share basic drawing methods that will help make your art both time saving and fun. Bring your own drawing (tools and supplies, i.e. pencils, charcoal, pastels, eraser, etc.), as Greg will provide drawing paper.

Greg's demo will be preceded by a short critique session (doors open at 6). The demo itself starts at 7. It is free and open to the public — no need to be a member for this.  All age groups and art experience are encouraged to attend. There will also be some light refreshments.
