The Union School Heritage Center will be conducting a series of art lessons beginning Thursday, Sept. 12 and running for six weeks. The class will be taught by Ellen Faulkner of Paris and will feature the Donna Dewberry One Stroke technique of painting.
Classes will be held each Thursday night from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m. 6:00 - 9:00 p.m. at center at 2158 Union Road near Paris. Cost of the classes will be $ 75 for the six-week term. Participants will have time to complete several projects during the term.
Faulkner has been painting with Donna Dewberry’s One Stroke technique for several years. She says you don’t have to be able to draw, just load your brush up and play in the paint. The paint used is water-based acrylic and can be easily cleaned up with soap and water. You can paint on almost any surface — wood, metal, glass, ceramic, paper, even fabric, and walls.
For the first class, participants should bring two standard clay pots, approximately six inches and seven inches in size. (Do not have to be new, just clean)
2 inch square sponge brushes (throw-away type for basecoating)
