Ken DeWaard

by Sarah Judson April 01, 2013

We enjoyed hearing from artist & teacher Ken DeWaard, who called to redeem the gift certificate he won last fall at the Sonoma plein air event. His painting is shown above, a 9"x12" oil entitled C'est La Vie. Originally from Chicago, Ken lives in Wisconsin and paints throughout the United States and in Italy. After receiving his Bachelor of Arts with honors, he began his career at a commercial art studio in Chicago. He continued his studies at the American Academy of Art, where he studied with nationally recognized watercolorist, Irving Shapiro. Upon Irving's recommendation Ken joined the acclaimed Palette and Chisel Academy of Fine Art in Chicago, where he soon began studying with Scott Burdick as well as Dan Gerhartz. His workshop page lists five upcoming Spring/Summer workshops in different parts of the country. He also teaches at The Academy of Fine Art in Denmark, Wisconsin. His blog contains images and discussion about all aspects of painting, traveling, teaching and learning. Also, check out our previous post about him here.
