The Newington Art League, Inc will hold its members meeting at 6:30 pm on Wednesday, November 8, 2023 in the Ceramics Room of the Newington Senior and Disabled Center at 120 Cedar St, Newington CT. Following the meeting, Jose Paulo will demonstrate his acrylic painting technique. These meetings are free and open to the public.
Jose Paulo is a singer, songwriter and musician, but the pandemic turned his world upside down. Being at home and without much to do the mental stress was getting to him. His wife suggested that creating some art might help relieve the stress. At the age of 13 he had studied for 6 months at the School of Plastic Arts in Rio DeJaneiro in his homeland Brazil.
Jose does not categorize himself in any style or artistic movement. He considers himself a student, an apprentice, an artist of the people. He paints according to his heart, inspiration and taste of his clients. He has already received an invitation to exhibit his work in Milan, Greece, and Spain.
