Instructor: Sureya Davis

Sureya Davis was born in Staten Island New York and now resides in Southern California, where she is a senior at the Laguna College of Art and Design (LCAD). While attending LCAD, Sureya developed a consistent subject matter, ranging from a variety of areas: portraits, still life’s, and figures included. Her focus within that subject matter deals with the simplicities of life, taking objects that aren’t normally formalized and treating them with as much care and importance as the faces she portrays. 

While attending LCAD, Sureya received multiple awards and scholarships, including the Festival of the Arts Scholarship, The Plotkin Memorial Foundation, Excellence in Art award, and the First Thursday Art Walk Scholarship.

Our classically trained faculty teaches painting techniques and compositions, placing emphasis on developing foundational skills and on pursuing a personal approach to painting from still life and from photographic references. Students receive individualized instruction and are encouraged to work at their own pace. In-class demonstrations will be shown using oil paints, but students may use the painting medium of their choice. Students furnish their own supplies and may bring what they typically use to class. For an idea of what supplies might be useful, see Suggested Materials List below.
