San Francisco, California

Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco is a national non-profit organization whose mission is to inspire and enable all young people, especially those from disadvantaged circumstances, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens. Part of the community since 1891, Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco (BGCSF) currently serve more than 1,400 youth (ages six-18) per day. They offer safe places where young people can learn, grow, and succeed. BGCSF has been nationally recognized for its Citywide Arts Program. Through daily art classes, members have the chance to learn techniques, increase skill, and develop discipline in the arts. UGallery and BGCSF have partnered to create a platform where youth in the program can showcase and sell their work. Proceeds from the sale of BGCSF artwork on UGallery will help fund the Citywide Arts Program at BGCSF and instill confidence in the young artists. Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco would like to thank you for your support!

Artwork Details

Comments About This Piece

This piece was created by Glory Rubio from Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco. Glory is very creative with color and how it can be used to represent an image. She has been in a number of local, city and national contests, and won the BGCSF Departmental Youth of the Year Award. Glory also won the BGCSF national contest in watercolors, monochromatic drawing, and acrylic painting. She is a weekly participant in the BGCSF Crayons to Collage program, through which she received a Scholarship to the San Francisco Art Institute.

This piece is on canvas board and will need a frame for display.

Oil painting

Oil paint uses natural oils, such as linseed, poppy and walnut oil to bind the pigments. Oils are slow to dry, which allows the artist to rework the painting to achieve the desired effect. Also, they blend easily, which helps to achieve certain colors. With the rise of naturalism in 15th century Early Netherlandish painting, oil paints became preferred to quick drying tempera paint. Artists wanted a medium that would allow them to achieve detailed and precise effects in their paintings. Consider all of the detail in the masterpieces of Jan van Eyck and Hieronymus Bosch!

Canvas board

Canvas board is a thin, flat panel of either particle board or cardboard wrapped in canvas. If not already framed, most canvas board work will require framing.

One-of-a-kind

A one-of-a-kind artwork is a unique piece handmade by the artist. There is only one in existence. The work may be part of a series, however, the piece itself is unlike any other. This piece is available exclusively at UGallery.
