Art students take “A Walk on the Beach”

Kimberly Remedies taught a painting class themed “A Walk on the Beach” at the Many Historic Depot Museum Sept. 9.

The “Happy Hours” classes, co-sponsored by the Town of Many Cultural District Advisory Committee and the Depot Art Guild, are hosted every 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Saturday in the month. Mayor Ken Freeman and the Town of Many are also sponsors. All of the class instructors are members of the Depot Art Guild and all play a major role in making everything possible.

Upon arriving, everyone was greeted with a smile and a friendly hello from the employees at the Historic Depot Museum. Canvases, paint, and brushes were distributed before Kimberly started the instructions. Students painted an ocean scene with a little sea turtle making his way to the shoreline.

All of the students seemed to be enjoying themselves as they all painted and chatted amongst each other. A few had a little hiccup painting the turtle onto their canvas, but nonetheless everyone’s masterpiece turned out beautiful.

Kimberly has taught this class for over a year now and has high hopes for the future. She said, “I want to see this art class grow and really prosper. I enjoy being able to do this for people who want to learn how to paint and honestly, it’s fun for me as well.”

If you or anyone you know is interested in an arts and crafts class, head on down to the Historic Depot Museum every 3rd Saturday in the month. Shanna Gaspard, the instructor of the class and President of the Depot Art Guild, will be making fall pumpkin home decorations this coming Saturday, Sept. 16.

The class only costs $20 and it is recommended that you call 318-602-1614 to reserve your spot today.
