Steve Greco painting demo March 26, 2017

Our first demonstration of the new year was wildlife artist Steve Greco who gave a most interesting demo - painting animals realistically in acrylic, with a gray wolf as his subject. An accomplished artistic interpreter of wildlife, he is also very knowledgeable about habitats and threats to species. As he painted and explained his unique process for rendering details such as fur and eyes, he talked about his experiences in the field, the importance of public awareness, and the role of the artist in the scheme of things.

An artist and a naturalist, Steve Greco believes that the natural world deserves mankind's total attention and compassion in its 'Eleventh Hour'. As part of his mission to raise awareness of the plight of earth’s life forms, he paints wildlife, hoping his animal portraits broaden an appreciation for the creatures.

Steve Greco has participated in many prestigious shows including the National Wildlife Art show in Washington DC, and he’s sat on the board of directors of the Nature Arts Organization. He studied at Velmure Art Studio, Butera School of Art, Middlesex Community College (Marine Biology), Harcourt School (Wildlife Conservation & Forestry) and with the famous wildlife artist Robert Bateman. He is affiliated with Newburyport Art Association, Greater Salem Artists Association, Vertu Fine Art Gallery, MA Wildlife Artisans Association, Cousteau Society, African Wildlife Foundation, and Greenpeace Foundation.
