Sally Browning Pearson - BIO
Watercolor Classes on Thursday Mornings
Art Education: Sally’s most influential teacher was Eloise Gardner Giles, Dunellen, Florida. Eloise was taught by Edgar Whitney, (one of the greatest watercolor teachers of our time). Sally took lessons from her for two years before she went out on her own to sell her artwork. Sally tells a funny story about her classes with Eloise. She signed up for both of Eloise’s classes, one in Inverness and one in Dunnellon, Fla. At the beginning of the semester in Inverness, Eloise said, “Sally, why are you in this class, the lessons are the same as the class in Dunnellon?” Sally said, “Well, I figured if I took two classes a week, I would learn faster”. And she did.
Over the years, in order to keep her skills sharp, Sally has taken many workshops from the well-known professional watercolor artist.
Information about Sally can be found on Facebook, Instagram or on her my blog. On the blog you will find many photos of her studios; her students working and many of her demonstrations.
Experience: Sally has been teaching since 1995. She conducted workshops at the J.C. Campbell Folk School, in Brasstown, North Carolina; Pocohauntaus Art League, and Greenbrier Artists League, in Lewisburg, West Virginia.
