Yupo is a compelling and unique alternative to traditional art papers. It's a synthetic paper, machine-made in the USA of 100% polypropylene. It is waterproof, stain-resistant, and extremely strong and durable. It is great to experiment with and try new approaches to painting. Due to the nature of Yupo you can lift, wash, build, pour and flow, as well as use a variety of techniques to create textures. Working from a still life and the imagination, beginners and experienced watercolorist will have an engaging experience creating on a Yupo surface.

Jeanne Gugino is originally from Buffalo and graduated from Buffalo State with a B. S. degree in Art Education.  With a move to Boston, she continued her studies at Massachusetts College of Art and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts. Having studied watercolor with Professor Kaji Aso, she became a member of his studio where she now serves as trustee, painting teacher and ceramic chair. Ms. Gugino is also on the faculties of the New Art Center, Lasell Village and Newton Community Education teaching watercolor and drawing. Jeanne Gugino is the former President of the Newton Art Association. Her work has been exhibited in Japan, Italy, UK as well as in local galleries.
