Painting and drawing classes are again being offered in Kearny by Gila Pueblo College during the spring semester with instructor Pat Lewis.
The painting group known as “ArtUs” will begin classes at 9 a.m., Thursday, Jan.10, at Ray Hall, adjacent to the Church of the Good Shepherd. The all-day class will end at 3 p.m.
Anyone in the Copper Basin area interested in the arts is invited to join the class. All mediums are explored, no experience is required, and all levels are welcome. All one needs is a desire to create.
During the classes, students are encouraged to select their own subject matter and are free to explore different applications. Also presented are other practicable applications related to the art experience such as color mixing, canvas stretching and framing ideas.
Easels and some reference materials are available, but all other supplies are the responsibility of the student.
A drawing class is also being offered starting Monday, Jan. 14. The first meeting for this class will be at Ray Hall at 9 a.m, with no pre-requisites.
If one would like to explore the art of drawing, this class is for them. Students practice drawing both in the classroom and on various excursions around the Copper Basin area.
Members of both groups will spend the academic year preparing to showcase their work in the annual ArtUs showing held in April.
Tuition will apply. Gila Pueblo College is affiliated with Eastern Arizona College and discounts are available to senior citizens. These classes also are eligible for accreditation for those who are seeking degrees.
New and continuing students can register by calling the college at 928-425-8481. Fees can be paid with debit or credit card. Students can also register by visiting the campus in Globe.
No registrations will be accepted at the class site. Registration ends Jan. 15.
