Are you an aspiring artist, or someone who wants to find out a little more about visual arts? Have you wanted to learn the fundamentals of drawing, or lean about painting or watercolors? The Southern Hills Arts Council is offering a four-session course so you can dabble in the arts.

This course will reacquaint you to art. Perfect for those who are craving a creative outlet, or just want to see if they have a raw, untapped talent, or if they just want to find an alternate activity that gets them out of the house and away from the adulting responsibilities of yard work and laundry.

Learn the fundamentals of drawing by working with pencils, charcoal and pastels. Paint on canvas and learn about acrylic, and oil paints, watercolor, brush techniques, and finding inspiration. Work from still life set ups and photographs. Focus on the basics, build skills, and learn how to see as an artist, while working from your own photos, a personal still life, and more.
