A youth art workshop will be held from 2 until 5 p.m. on Wednesday, July 27, at the Jackson County Community Center, part of ColorFest, Art of the Blue Ridge.
Young artists will create a finished pastel art piece in a workshop facilitated by Doreyl Ammons Cain. The art pieces will be included in a series of youth note cards designed by Etheree Chancellor during the workshop. The young artists will have a table at ColorFest to sell their art note cards.
During the second part of the art process, facilitated by Victoria Casey McDonald, Terry Michelsen and Pam Dengler, the young artists will sketch out a mural to be completed at ColorFest on October 22 with the theme of “Our Jackson County.” It will depict all four seasons in a large landscape.
The workshop is open to youth ages 8 to 12 and ages 13 to 17. $15 covers the entire workshop. 828.631.4587 or visit www.spiritofappalachia.org. Limited to 15 participants.
