Paint your own canvas

 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 fifth “Your Own Painted Canvas – Where Fun Meets Art” class will be on Sept. 17.  In this traditional still-life painting class, we will be working with contrasting hues and white-based color blends to achieve hints of contour and shape.

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.

Each class will run from 6:30 p.m.-8:30 p.m. 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.

Additional Series Dates:
October 15
November 12
December 17

Artist Bio:

Jeremy Scrimager was born and raised in Somerset, Kentucky. He is a graduate of Pulaski County High School and 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 a variety of each in his paintings.

“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.”

Scrimager 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!

The Center is located at 2292 South U.S. 27 (at Traffic Light 15) in Somerset.
