Joan Daugherty is a Gulf Coast historical painter who has 25 published prints and does nearly all mediums. She is an advocate of painting techniques that apply to different mediums. Also, she is in the process of writing a book on her painting techniques.
Her travels over the years have given her opportunities to paint almost any subject. She says her favorite way to paint is with a palette knife and oil or acrylic paints.
Daugherty is coming to Tiffin Art Guild to offer an acrylic impressionist art class 9:30 a.m.-4 p.m. July 21 and 1-4 p.m. July 22. She is to guide participants in painting a 16- by 20-inch landscape scene. Class size is limited to 30 people.
The fee is $95 for TAG members and $100 for non-members. The fee must be paid in full (by check or cash) before the class. Lunch and supplies are included. Frames are to be available for purchase at additional cost. The instructor is to have framing tools available to help students create frames.
While in her early 20s, Daugherty started painting in her hometown of Lincoln, Neb. She had been an avid and experienced photographer; however, when she started painting, another world opened up. She saw details that might have gone unnoticed. Working, going to college and painting kept her busy. At the University of Nebraska, she was pursuing a degree in psychology.
When she moved from Lincoln to Bellevue, she transferred to Bellevue College at night and decided to pursue a degree in fine arts.
Joan said she did not learn as much art in college as she did from outside art teachers such as Renee Reed and Italian artist Oscar Sormani, who helped develop her talent.
