The Center for Rural Development’s
Your Own Painted Canvas – Where Fun Meets Art

Explore your creative side in The Center for Rural Development’s new Painting Classes!

Our award winning instructor, Jeremy Scrimager, will guide you through creating your own version of the monthly featured painting. We provide everything needed, along with the clean-up, so you can just show up and have a great time.

“I think the best way to get folks comfortable using a paint brush is to not have to make one single solitary line. Just some swooshes, wooshes, whips, dips, dobs, and dabs.” Jeremy Scrimager

Our first ‘Your Own Painted Canvas – Where Fun Meets Art’ class on May 28th, will feature Basic Organic Impressionism. We will be working to build an overall composite image with fast brush work and minimal drying time between layers.

Artist Bio:

Jeremy Scrimager was born and raised in Somerset, Kentucky. He is a graduate of Pulaski County High School and of Eastern Kentucky University. He is an artist, activist, and philanthropist.

His art style is a mix of traditional Appalachian folk, Jazz inspired funk, Gonzo, and street flavorings. He works in several media and often mixes in a variety in each of his paintings. He has been featured on KET’s Kentucky Life, has twice been awarded recognition at Gonzofest in Louisville, has pieces in several states and a few other countries, and frequently donates art to local charitable organizations to aid in their fundraising efforts.

Known locally and in the art community as ‘Scrim’, he wants you to come out, experience the act of making art, learn a little something, and just have fun!
