Stephen Stroup, a
native of Hanover, PA, is not just an Oil painter.
is his personal medium of choice, he's also skilled in
pencil, pen and ink, watercolor,
pastels and colored pencil. He's been very active with
the Guild over the years, he served
on the board for 33 years, was even President of the Guild
and these days he does what he does best, teaching others in
the way of art!
For over 30 years, he has offered classes from his home
studio here in Hanover,
from classes that we promote each quarter, to one-on-one
designed for the artist seeking more direction without the
large class setting.
He teaches both youth and adults, currently his youngest
student is 8, and his
oldest student is 86!
Stephen's purpose of his art is to immerse the viewer in the
beauty of a given subject
and draw them in closer with the many little details which
most people may never
take the time to observe and enjoy. In today's world,
we seem to be rushing from
point A to point B, and just don't take time to slow down
observe the total beauty that surrounds us daily.
Stephen's paintings include landscapes, seascapes, trains,
portraits and historical landmarks.
