THE NEXT PAA
Tuesday the 26th of MARCH 2013
(Door open at 6:30pm)
Teta Smith, co-owner of Artists’ Showplace gallery paints luminescent paintings in watermedia and collage.
In Kindergarten, she was asked to bring one of her father’s old shirts in order to paint the next day.
“I don’t know what was more exciting – the bright colors of paint, or getting to wear my Daddy’s old white shirt. Whatever it was, I was hooked. I still wear one of his shirts whenever I paint.”
Fortunate to have an artistically talented mother, Teta has vivid childhood memories of creating all kinds of things with her. Together with her grandmother, who lived with them, she had plenty of encouragement for her blossoming creativity.
Teta also teaches Beginning Realistic and Beginning Abstract Watermedia painting classes. A seasoned teacher, she holds an undergraduate degree in Education and a Masters degree in Counseling, which is a terrific combination for teaching the art of painting to beginners.
