The next Corks and Canvas night will be Thursday, October 17, from 6:00-9:00 p.m., lead by El Dorado artist Ann Trimble. All are welcome to join this fun, one-night workshop to learn a new technique in a low-pressure, high-enjoyment atmosphere and take a completed project home at the end of the evening.

The October project will focus on acrylic painting-Trimble’s preferred medium for her own work. She will lead the class through the creation of a fall-influenced floral, with bold strokes and strong colors. The class will work with seasonal botanicals to create a charming original painting celebrating the beauty of fall.

A full-time artist born and raised in El Dorado, Trimble works primarily in abstracts. Starting her arts training at the age of 5, she also earned a degree in film and media arts from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, which helped hone her unique ability to find interest and beauty in a wide range of places, from clothing to interior design.

Corks & Canvas is an art class for non-artists who have always wanted to paint. Each class is conducted by a different art instructor who takes the class through the step-by-step process to complete a work of art in three hours. The $40.00 fee covers all supplies and snacks. This class is limited to 12. Those taking the class should bring their favorite libation and get ready to have a good time.
