Shanna Gaspard, the President of the Depot Art Guild, instructed a “Happy Hours” class where they made fall pumpkin home decorations Sept. 16 at the Many Depot Art Gallery. Everyone was given a wooden pumpkin cut out, paint, and were instructed to pick their favorite design. Some of the students went the traditional route with orange and brown paint while others chose colors such as blue and white. The youngest attendees painted a Batman pumpkin and an Emoji pumpkin.
Mrs. Gaspard asked for us to share a sneak peek of the next craft she will be working on. It is a wreath made of recycled bags.
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.
