Idabel, OK (May 21, 2019)—The McCurtain County Art Club is offering a series of painting classes at the Museum, starting on June 8. The multi-week, comprehensive program will cover the basics of acrylic painting. Students will create two works of art: a landscape painting and a still life painting. The program is open to anyone twelve or older. Cost is $50. All supplies are included. Students may keep any unused materials, at no additional cost, for future projects. Due to the nature of the class, only fifteen enrollees will be accepted. Registration is available online, in the Museum Store, or over the phone at (580) 286 – 3616.
The program is scheduled for the last four Saturdays in June. Each class starts at 10:00 am and ends around 1:00 pm. Dr. Gleny Beach, a former Director of Visual Art at Southeastern Oklahoma State University, will lead the program. Dr. Beach is a commercially successful artist and teacher, with over two decades of experience at SOSU alone. Her recent accomplishments include a 2009 Governor’s Arts Award and membership to the 2010 People to People Citizen Ambassador Program.
