Craig Stephens - FAA October 14, 2021 Arti Demo

Join us for October’s art demo with Craig Stephens. “A lot of painters have trouble painting reflective metal surfaces. Craig will be painting a small chrome teapot.”

Craig was born in Sacramento California in 1963. He grew up in the foothill town of Weimar. Craig attended American River College and later transferred to UC Davis. He received his B.A. in art studio from UC Davis in 1993.

During his time in college, he had the privilege of taking classes from Gary Pruner, Roy DeForest, David Hollowell and Wayne Thiebaud. In 1996, Craig began teaching high school art classes in Auburn California. He has recently retired from that position to concentrate on painting and private workshops and lessons. He has said that, “The practice of completing a painting a day suits my disposition and aesthetic. I have also found that modeling this sort of daily practice for my students is important.”

Craig currently resides In Auburn, California with his wonderful wife and amazing children. His works can be found in hundreds of private and corporate collections around the world. Craig has just finished writing a beginner’s guide to oil painting for Page Street Publishing. It will be available this winter.
