Steve Ko – February 5, 2018  Portrait Painting
Demo Artist

Steve, was our Best of Show winner in the open show a couple years ago for his lovely portrait of one of his students painting a large canvas. He will be demonstrating a portrait painting from a live model at the February meeting. He is a wonderful speaker and an accomplished classical portrait artist. Steve will also be doing a workshop for us in April.

Steve Ko is an internationally known portrait artist and a teacher who is driven by an in- credible passion for creating art works in old master’s style such as John Singer Sargent. His works are often noted for their unique style, elegance, and technique.

Steve has developed his artistic ability at Art Center College of Design in California under the guidance of masters such as Burne Ho- garth, Harry Carmean, Gary Meyer, and Steve Huston.

His use of vibrant colors and unique brush strokes makes his work an excellent choice for a wide range of projects and purposes.

Join us for an interactive demo of Alcohol Inks Jan. 14 in DeSoto


The DeSoto Art League meets on the 2nd Saturday of each month beginning at 2:00 PM and ending at 4 PM at the DeSoto Presbyterian Church at 212 W. Pleasant Run Rd. in DeSoto. Light refreshments provided.

On January 14th, 2017 the Art League will present painting with Alcohol Inks. There are several techniques that will be presented by Julie Danford and Jean Wiley. The inks are quite vivid and are unusual in that they can be applied to non-porous surfaces. This interactive demonstration will have you try the methods on photographic paper and ceramic tile. You will also learn how to make the inks yourself so you can add this technique to your artist’s palette. Consider yourself invited—as a member, or as a guest!
