Your Own Painted Canvas – Where Fun Meets Art – August 27th

 Explore your creative side in The Center for Rural Development’s new painting classes.

 Explore your creative side in The Center for Rural Development’s new painting series, “Your Own Painted Canvas – Where Fun Meets Art”.

The Center’s fourth “Your Own Painted Canvas – Where Fun Meets Art” class will be on August 27th. Continuing the mixed media fun, students will be using acrylic and ink to practice contrasting black and white with vibrant, complimentary colors. Students will also be working on using their brush to create basic shapes and their eye to create an implied shape. Also, it’s a panda!

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 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. ,” said Jeremy Scrimager.
