ABOUT SUE SCHEEWE

picture of instructor

There are those who paint for fun and those who paint making it a career; Sue falls into both categories. Sue worked for Grumbacher for 20 years and with Martin F. Weber for 25 years and now, going full circle, is back with Grumbacher. Both companies have a signature line of art materials. Sue has taught workshops in Germany, New Zealand, England, and Canada as well as many in the United States. She feels honored to have done the Scheewe Art Workshop for over 30 years. Many of her shows have been seen in 23 countries and are in numerous languages. She also can be seen on the Create Channel. It is a privilege for her to bring the classroom into the homes of the viewers. For the first 20 years, Sue taught mostly oil painting classes; after becoming sensitive to products she switched to teaching in acrylic and watercolor. Sue has published over 500 hundred instruction books and has written 51 of her own, as well as many articles for art material magazines. Geme sells her prints internationally.

Sue still enjoys teaching and the rewards of the joy it brings students when they learn new techniques. It has been a great life long journey that she enjoys with her husband who, for years, was an art distributor. Her two daughters teach art.
