Artist and teacher Kay Owens will be exhibiting some of her watercolor artwork at Arts Visalia in California. She will also demonstrate key design techniques to attendees so they can incorporate them in their own pieces, according to The Visalia Times-Delta.
She has conducted workshops and been a judge in art competitions before. She is passionate about art and teaching it to a future generation of students who will be pursuing their design degrees. One of her favorite parts is discovering the potential of each individual artist.
"I want to bring out their talents and creativity," she told the news source. "They have the talent but they don't see it."
She herself attended the University of California, Santa Barbara, and graduated with a bachelor's degree in arts. She has studied underneath a number of renowned artists such as Albert Handell, Richard McDaniel and Tom Lynch.
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics states that 45 percent of painters are self-employed. More than 400,000 were employed in 2008 and many work for construction firms, providing wall painting for renovation and reconstruction projects. Job prospects for painters are estimated to be "excellent" in the future.
