About Doris Charest - website - https://www.dorischarest.ca
Doris’s love of painting started when a Houston neighbor took her to her first watercolor class and there, she fell in love with painting. As they say, the rest was history. Painting became a daily activity and exploring the different mediums became the challenge. Doris took classes from a variety of artists in the United States and Canada.
Occasionally travel slips in with her artwork. She was a guest artist in Québec, she has participated in Residencies in Peru and India and she travelled all over Alberta as an ‘Artist in the Community’. When she cannot travel, Doris lets her work travel for her. She has exhibited in the United States and all across Canada. Her artwork has been featured on posters, magazine and poetry books. She won the Sylvie Braband award for work in the community.
A few days before the critique date you will be sent an email with further instructions and a link to Zoom. It is easiest if you have a Zoom account already downloaded on your computer or other device but not necessary. Below are links to Zoom tutorials.
