The South Arkansas Arts Center is inviting the community to its upcoming Corks and Canvas class, this month led by SAAC and Yocum Elementary Art Instructor Nicole McAdams.
This month's Corks and Canvas class "Inner Glow" will be held on Thursday, June 15 from 6-9 p.m.
This month's claws will be a fun-filled night of painting that is designed for people who have always wanted to try their hand at art and also have some fun along the way.
McAdams has chosen an acrylic neon-paint project where participants will paint mandalas.
Mandalas are generally created as a form of meditation. During this Corks and Canvas class, participants will create their own mandalas in a serene environment by exploring layers of organic and geometric shapes.
For a fun twist, painters will use neon paints and blacklights to discover the inner layers of our own creativity.
McAdams said, "Mandalas are a fun project for me because no matter your artistic ability you can create an interesting mandala. The process of creating mandalas is peaceful, relaxing and doesn't require much thought which is often how I love to create art."
No experience is needed. Paints, brushes, and all the supplies are provided, and SAAC will also be providing snacks. Participants are welcome to bring their own drink of choice.
