Painting For a Purpose, the monthly adult painting party offered at the 6th Cavalry Museum will be held on Thursday, April 26 from 5:30-8 p.m. Local artist Durinda Cheek is the featured instructor. Ms. Cheek has been a familiar face on the local, state and regional art scene since 1989.
The cost is $40 and includes appetizers, canvas, painting supplies and instruction, so each guest leaves with a completed 16 x 20 acrylic work of art. Food is served at 5:30 p.m. and the class begins at 6 p.m. Guests are encouraged to bring the adult beverage of their choice and an apron or old shirt to protect their clothes.
The 16 x 20 canvas will be pre-sketched with Cheek demonstrating painting techniques, how to mix colors and giving individualized instruction, so each guest finishes their painting that night. “April Showers” allows the guest to choose to paint a girl or a boy and the colors for the child’s rain gear, allowing each guest to personalize their painting. Door prizes, music and camaraderie add to the fun.
Proceeds from Painting for a Purpose benefits the 6th Cavalry Museum, the non-profit museum located on the former Army Post in Fort Oglethorpe. The museum is ADA compliant and is equipped with a lift to the 2nd floor community room where the class is held. Pre-registration is required and class size is limited to 20 participants.
