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

I like the idea of working some art basics into each class to get folks comfortable with what it is they’re attempting to do. Folks will also gain some fundamental painting knowledge during the class,” said Jeremy Scrimager.

Each class will run from 6:30pm – 8:30pm and cost $35 per person. Participants must be over 12 years old to participate.

Registration will close 48 hours prior to class, with a limit of 30 people per class. If the class is full, please contact The Center at 606-677-6000 to be placed on a waiting list.
