Where creativity is nurtured, skills are acquired, and art is made
Penelope Richards has been a decorative artist for 16 years and a Certified OneStroke Instructor for 10 years. She has taught Donna Dewberry's OneStroke technique to children and adults at Fallbrook School of the Arts; JoAnn Fabrics & Crafts, as well as private lessons and “Paint Parties.” This fast decorative painting technique begins with basic strokes taught by a OneStroke Instructor, and then is designed for self/home teaching and advancement. OneStroke is an inexpensive acrylic technique that can be used on paper, clothing, glassware, garden items, bodies and even edible paint for cakes! Ms. Richards started with OneStroke, then became a Trompe L'Oeil artist (french for "trick the eye"), muralist and faux finisher; and has a line of hand painted "original art" greeting cards which take an average of only 1-3 minutes to paint! She has been published in Donna Dewberry's Paint Magazine and Decorate with Paint magazine and resides in Fallbrook, California.
