Charles Shurcliff is an Ipswich resident who was born in Beverly, MA. He started drawing during the Roosevelt Administration and spent twenty years learning the fundamentals of painting from his grandfather, Cape Ann painter Charles Hopkinson. He went on to study painting at the Cummington School of the Arts followed by eight years at Harvard University. For many years Charles enjoyed a parallel, and more gainful, career in Architecture and Landscape Architecture. Charles’ demo will take place outdoors in front of the art association. He will paint the beautiful harbor scene in his signature quick, loose plein air painting style. The demo will total one hour, and questions are welcomed as he goes along. Let’s hope for good weather!
