Watercolor on Yupo Paper - a Modern, Creative Approach

Pushing the limits of traditional watercolor techniques to achieve very creative and unusual effects is the theme of the art master class to be given by artist Judith A. Hummer on Wednesday, Dec. 2. This 5:30 to 8 p.m. session via zoom is planned to accommodate both hands-on artists and relaxed observers.

Yupo is a high gloss, synthetic, tree-free, recyclable material. It is also a correctible surface, meaning that if after trying an idea the artist does not like the result, the paint can be wiped off. Consequently, no paper is wasted. Hummer believes, “Yupo is a perfect surface with which to play; a lot of times we forget to play and just have fun with our art. Yupo is the answer.”

However, Yupo is slippery. During the master class, Hummer will share some easy ways to handle this art surface. In addition, she likes to be adventurous by using common, household items to add texture. Participants should put “Yupo Supplies” in the subject line and email to request a list of suggested supplies for the class or find the list through a link in the Yupo story on the Cultural Affairs website:

Judith Hummer has been the recipient of numerous awards from various international and regional juried exhibitions. She has also been juror or judge in many art shows.
