Journey Through Time

I am excited to teach a workshop for:

California Watercolor Association 

Juanita Hagberg – Painting Abstractly Using Watercolors on Yupo
November 1-3, 2023 (3 Days), 9 AM – 4 PM PST

*Recording of the entire workshop will be available for 30 days
Advanced Beginner to Advanced

Each day, there will be demonstrations, discussion, painting time, personal feedback, and critique. If you want to take your painting in a more abstract direction, Yupo is worth trying. Working on it allows you to experiment and take chances in your art journey. We will go beyond painting what we see, to expressing more personal responses to a subject or idea. There will be new ideas to inspire you, and plenty of opportunity to be more spontaneous and creative. You will also see how using composition and design strengthens your work. Whether you’re an advanced beginner, have been painting watercolors a long time, or feel “stuck,” this workshop will get you thinking about expanding your possibilities as an artist

Recording Available: Yes

Registration Fees:  Non-Members $255, Members $195

Stanwood Camano Area Foundation Award

I was pleased to present my painting, "English Boom Memory," to Dr. Khafiya Arte, M.D. She is the recipient of the Stanwood Camano Area Foundation "Philanthropist of the Year" award. SCAF hosted a wonderful breakfast on Camano Island, WA, honoring local philanthropists and volunteers.
Dr. Arte is a first-generation Somali American and Internal Medicine resident physician from Marysville, WA. Growing up in a refugee family in the US, socioeconomic issues led to adverse health outcomes in her family, a familiar plight for low-income families everywhere. This adversity inspired her commitment to bettering community health outcomes through patient-centered primary care.
Fueled by a dedication to volunteerism and the art of helping, she helped found The Fieldhouse Project, a nonprofit organization based in Ghana, West Africa that aims to promote community development through education, woman empowerment, sports, and mentorship. She also founded a branch of COVIDsitters, a national ad hoc volunteer organization made of medical students eager to assist fellow healthcare workers during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Dr. Arte can frequently be found volunteering, whether at community health clinics, vaccine drives for houseless populations, tutoring and mentoring students of all backgrounds, educating the public about common health conditions in person and via podcast, and many other projects. Dr. Arte firmly believes that the core of community health is community engagement, and at the core of community engagement is volunteerism.
