“Reflections” by Susan Kronowitz

 

 

Anyone who knows Susan Kronowitz knows that Thursday morning is her teaching day, both in her Illinois Del Webb Community and her home in Boynton Beach, FL.  She tells The Rickie Report, “I had many years of experience as a painter and studying the disciplines & methods of art as well as art history,  but no formal teaching education. When the opportunity arose, I was excited and love this new chapter in my life!

 

 

“Berries and Cream” by Susan Kronowitz

 

 

Susan’s artist mission includes,”The spirit of the place or scene is what I wish to reproduce.  Colors are often altered and painted completely different from what I observe…larger-than-life flowers capture the spirit of the garden in which the actual flowers are growing.  I feel that capturing the fleeing light and its effects, the shadows, is what creates a mood in all paintings.  I was inspired by Monet’s gardens on a trip to Giverny and knew that someday, I too, must paint the gifts of my garden.”

 

 

Floral by Susan Kronowitz

 

Susan shares with us, “I feel completely connected to all of my paintings, as they all began with a photograph of a place where I have visited”.  Traveling extensively opens the possibilities of a series of paintings and inspiration for new pieces of artwork just waiting to be released onto the canvas or paper.  Using the College of Lake County as her studio for over 25 years, Susan has been developing her own individual style, gaining experience and honing her craft.  Her artwork can be found in the permanent collection of CLC.

 

“Fruits” by Susan Kronowitz

 

 

Many of her students never had the chance to study art when they were younger, as they were all pursuing career. They are like sponges, ready to learn! “My students give me so much energy and it is amazing what they are creating!  The highlight of the year of the Annual Student Afternoon of Fine Art, a professionally presented exhibition showcase for the entire community to see what these students have accomplished in our classes together”.

 

Having studied with so many different art instructors over the years, Susan has developed her own style of teaching. “I give the students  the fundamentals and the first two classes are devoted to this.  We study color theory, mixing of paints and making a color chart.  I show them the basics and give them the space to create.  It is always amazing to see what they accomplish”!

 

“Prairie Voices” by Susan Kronowitz

 

In 2003, “Prairie Voices: A Collection of Student Writing/Art” was published  through the College of Lake County, highlighting Susan’s artistry. The Disappearing Barns of Illinois   “I actually was proud at one time to say that I don’t paint barns, but then they called me”.  Susan started her “Barn series” in response to the many farms being lost to developers in Lake County and the surrounding area.  Her paintings have become a “record of the barns that inhabited the land before the subdivisions that are now the urban landscape”.

Students share, “From the first day I met her, I knew Susan was the teacher for us.  With her flexible attitude and ability to listen to our needs, each student has embraced painting and discovered abilities they didn’t even realize they possessed”!  May students had never drawn or painted before coming to Susan’s class.  It is remarkable the talent people have hidden within them. Susan teaches and encourages each student with a positive attitude. Through the years, she’s changed direction, depending on the groups’ needs. She invited inspiring artists to speak and arranges field trips to underline the necessity of nurturing while opening a new world to their eyes”.

 

Susan Kronowitz’ Art Work Published

 

 

 

Susan tells us, “The medium of Colored pencil lends itself so nicely to express food such as fruits and vegetables.  The style I developed is a painterly effect, obliterating the pencil mark and making images appear to be painted.  I was beyond thrilled to be included in “The Best Of Colored Pencil 1 and 2”, published by the Colored Pencil Association of America.  Imagine having my image chosen for the outside of The Gift Set of Colored Pencil I & II!

 

 

Susan Kronowitz’ Collection at Vida

 

For Susan’s 70th birthday, her younger daughter compiled a 193 page book, with professional photos, of Susan’s “Creative Lifetime Journey”.   Even as this article publishes, Susan continues to create and find new outlets for her beautiful paintings. Her latest endeavor is a collaboration with the Vida Company, which creates original, inspiring apparel based on Susan’s artwork.  Together, with Vida, Susan has created pillows, scarves, wraps, totes,and fashionable tops, all featuring her original designs.  Susan has received many awards for her artwork and her paintings have been exhibited in numerous shows, and can be found in several public and private collections.  In addition to working in colored pencil and oil painting, Susan brings her unique visual eye to beaded artistry as well.
