Acrylic Painting Class Begins at the Creative Arts Center
    By popular demand, the Creative Arts Center will offer another Acrylic Painting Class beginning Wednesday, April 3. The class will be taught by Katherine Kluger and will run from 1:30-3:30 p.m. weekly for six weeks. The cost of the class is $150 and there is a supply list, available at the arts center. For students convenience, there is a budget supply list and a regular one.
    Advance sign up is required by calling the center at 903-640-2196 and paying by credit card over the phone or by stopping by the center at 200 W. 5th Street in Bonham, one block off the Bonham square.
    Students will study basic techniques, paint a variety of subjects and no experience is required. Participants must be at least 16 years of age.
Color Wheel Workshop April 6
    Whether you paint portraits, landscapes or abstracts, knowledge of color is tantamount to success at paintings that “wow” the viewer. The science of color is about contrast, light and dark, hue and value. The popular technique of Acrylic Pouring has brought art into the homes of many folks who never dreamed they would paint. And, it’s fun!
    To produce more paintings that “wow”, a Color Wheel Workshop will be offered at the Creative Arts Center from 9:30 to 12:30 on Saturday, April 6. In this workshop, participants will make their own color wheel, learning color theory along the way. The cost is a minimal $5 for supplies which are included in the workshop, taught by Katherine Kluger.
    Why do red and green work together with the way they do? Why do blue and yellow make such a great contrast? Why does color affect us the way it does? Learn these things and more at this great workshop, suitable for all levels of experience. Pour painters will benefit by learning which colors to use to make their paintings pop.
    Please make your reservations for the workshop by calling the Creative Arts Center at 903-640-2196 or by stopping by 200 W. 5th to get on the list.
