Kick back and relax as you join us at the for the next Corks and Canvas lead by Nicole McAdams, local artist as well as art teacher at both the SAAC Arts Academy and at Yocum Elementary! This month’s Corks and Canvas class “Inner Glow” will be held on Thursday, June 15 from 6-9pm. This will be a fun-filled night of painting that is designed for people who have always wanted to try their hand at art and also have some fun along the way.

Our artist this month has chosen an acrylic neon-paint project where you will paint mandalas. Mandalas are generally created as a form of meditation. During this Corks and Canvas class, participants will create their own mandalas in a serene environment by exploring layers of organic and geometric shapes. For a fun twist, we will use neon paints and blacklights as we discover the inner layers of our own creativity. McAdams said, “Mandalas are a fun project for me because no matter your artistic ability you can create an interesting mandala. The process of creating mandalas is peaceful, relaxing and doesn’t require much thought which is often how I love to create art.”

No experience is needed. Paints, brushes, and all the supplies are provided, and SAAC will also be providing snacks. Participants are welcome to bring their own drink of choice.
