Oil painting class offered at CAC

The Azalee Marshall Cultural Activities Center is currently hosting an open studio oil painting experience for adults. Members of the community are welcome to immerse themselves in a relaxing afternoon as they paint with the guidance from Helen Alexander.

Classes will cover several oil painting techniques, including blocking, shadows and highlights, pallet knife painting, and still life painting.

The purpose of this class is to provide a soothing environment to bring art into existence and to explore different approaches to oil painting. People of all levels of experience are welcome.

Alexander is an artist from the community who specializes in oil painting. She has taught at the CAC many times before. Alexander will be working on her own painting and will aim to provide inspiration and insightfulness.

Sessions will take place 1-3 p.m. on Saturdays, Aug. 11 and Aug. 25. The cost is $18 a session. Registration is open at the CAC and available online at cacarts.org. Supplies are not included.
