Beginning on March 14, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., local artist Dan Curry will be
offering free painting and drawing classes in the Sullivan County Library. The residency program will be for adults 18 years or older and will be held Saturdays at the Library from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Two Saturdays (April 11 and 18) will be excluded due to other scheduled activities for the artist. A list of specific dates will be shared during the first class for the convenience of all involved. Interested persons can sign up at either the Sullivan County Library, Sullivan Terrace, or at Pam’s Restaurant.
The Medias covered are Charcoal / Pencil Drawing Pastel, Watercolor, Acrylics, and Oils. The subjects covered will be dynamic drawing / painting, still life, portrait, and landscape.
The sponsored residency will conclude by May 30, but the artist will offer private sessions at the Sullivan Terrace once per month and will advise on framing needs and provide a plein air experience. There will be a fee for these classes.
All participants’ art created can be prepared for display in the library and selected work will be exhibited at the library.
The Sullivan County Library is located at 206 Center St. in Dushore, Pa.
