Curious Holds Saturday Drawing Classes

PALESTINE, OCTOBER 27, 2017 -- Curious, Palestine’s popular arts/science museum, is offering three drawing classes for adults in conjunction with its Texas Heroes art exhibit that features works by well-known local artist Janet Staples.

To be held on October 28, and November 11 and 18, these classes will be taught by Pat Rainey, an art educator with over 35 years’ experience. Ms. Rainey is known for her ability to help beginners succeed and advanced students further refine their skills. Participants will learn basic proportions of the face, and how to use value (shading from light to dark) to add dimension to details. She will be joined on Saturday, November 11, by exhibit artist, Janet Staples, who will share with participants her techniques and how to develop skills from the ground up. 

Prices for each class are $12 for non-members and $8 for members. A minimum of three participants is required for each class to “make”. The classes are available as a package of three at $32 for non-members and $21 for members. Reservations and pre-payment is required. Reservations can be made on the Curious website at exhibitcurious.org. 

The Texas Heroes exhibit is on view at Curious October 26 – December 30, 2017. It is on loan from the Texas Oil and Gas Association in Austin, TX. Other exhibit programming includes a Gallery Talk on Wednesday, November 8, at 5:30 pm and a Family Day on Saturday, December 9, from 10 am – 3 pm. 

The Curious Store is also open. It will feature numbered and unnumbered prints of the Texas Heroes artwork for sale individually or as a set. Many Store items are currently marked half-price to make room for new merchandise.

It engages preschoolers through adults in a fun, exciting, and, ultimately, educational experience. It is open to the public on Saturdays from 10 am – 3 pm. Admission is $5/person for ages 3 and up.
