The South Arkansas Arts Center will host Corks and Canvas night with El Dorado artist Laura Barrow on Sept. 20, from 6 to 9 p.m. Barrow will lead the group in painting a decorative white fall pumpkin in acrylics on a 12”x12” canvas.
Barrow, a local artist and stage veteran at SAAC, is a self-taught artist.
“It really is just a fun hobby for me, a good stress relief!” she said. “I like to paint and draw. My paintings have a lot of texture and are usually mixed media. I paint with acrylics, but I like to get creative and use fun things like turmeric from the spice cabinet or spray rubbing alcohol onto the paint to create interesting movement.”
Corks and Canvas is an art class for non-artists who have always wanted to paint. Each class is conducted by a different art instructor, who takes the class through the step-by-step process to complete a work of art in three hours.
The $40 fee covers all supplies and snacks. This class is limited to 12. Those taking the class should bring their favorite libation and get ready to have a good time.
For more information or to register for this class, please call the SAAC office at 870-862-5474 or visit the website at www.saac-arts.org. SAAC is located at 110 East Fifth Street, El Dorado, Arkansas.
