Cheri Fry

Fry is an award winning artist exhibiting in regional, national, and international art competitions. She is a signature member of Louisiana Watercolor Society; an exhibiting member of the Oil Painters of America, Art Guild of Louisiana, Watercolor Society of Houston, Southern Watercolor Society, and a member of the National Watercolor Society. Her art is featured in Splash 19: Illusion of Light (North Light Books) and is found in private and corporate collections across the United States. She is an art instructor for classes and private students for nearly 30 years, and conducts art workshops. In 2010 Cheri founded an healing art organization whose members paint with pediatric patients in children’s hospitals. In addition to her art career, Fry holds and maintains national certification as a Speech, Language Pathologist in her local school district for the past 32 years.


Cheri knows how to engage her students. Her motto is “Smile, Play and Have Fun”. She will teach you how to embrace your mistakes, love them and allow them to teach you.
The workshop will explore the opaque and layering abilities of Acrylic, chalk paint, gouche, watercolor, and pastel painting. Students will make two pieces of art. In working on the first project: “Simplify the Subject”, participants will develop a tone study of the subject with emphasis on having the eye travel around the sketch and how to leave out unnecessary elements. Project Two will consist of choosing a style for original painting  to make a 3-tone small study. By copying brushwork patterns they will morph into one’s own style.
