Special Event: Art Sampler Class

Have you ever been interested in making art with different mediums, but felt overwhelmed by the start-up cost or by trying to figure out something new on your own? Winterville Arts Council has a solution!

 

On the evenings of February 22 & February 29, they will host Sampler Classes at the Winterville Cultural Center. These one-night-only classes for adults will be taught by local artists, many of whom are members of the WAC.

 

With the purchase of a ticket, each participant will choose one class on both of the evenings, giving the participant a chance to experience two different mediums. The instructor will provide all of the supplies and will guide you through the basics of their specific medium from start to finish. You will leave with a finished piece and the newfound knowledge of how to further your personal art-making at home!

 

Tickets are $75 and can be purchased by calling the Cultural Center (706) 742-0823.

 

Class size is limited to 10.

Oil Painting
Wednesdays
1p-3p

Creating art is one of those magical activities that seem to bring out the best in people. It is something that, no matter when one starts in life, gives the person a feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment. Even though painting is a solitary activity, the classroom environment provides feedback, guidance, friendship and occasionally, a masterpiece. The class has been taught at the Winterville Cultural Center for the past 7 years. Dortha Jacobson is an experienced teacher with a masters degree in Art Education. Her goal is to allow each student freedom to work at their own speed and to recognize their potential by giving suggestions and demonstrations. Students are introduced to color theory, given group challenges, taught awareness of values, taught how to critique a painting and given opportunities to exhibit their work in local shows. New students are welcomed at any time.
