Art Outreach Gallery Paint Class

The Art Outreach Gallery invites you to Holiday Paintshop, a holiday-themed painting class at our Eastwood Mall space on Tuesday, December 13. Award-winning artist and local art teacher Susan Jacobs is the instructor of this fun-filled event.

Holiday Paintshop is open to all ages--absolutely no experience necessary! Ms. Jacobs will take "paintshoppers" step-by-step in creating "White Christmas Tree." The acrylics on canvas (20" x 16") painting is sure to be a much cherished holiday decoration. (And makes a wonderful, personally handcrafted GIFT!)

Please be sure to tell your painter (and newbie!) friends--it's always more fun to paint together! The Holiday Paintshop class is strictly limited to 24 attendees--so be sure to sign up soon.

The $35 workshop fee includes all paint supplies and helps support Art Outreach Gallery exhibits, workshops and events. Beverages and light refreshments are provided by event sponsor Salvatore's Restaurants

"Beautiful Minds"

The Art Outreach Gallery is pleased to exhibit "Beautiful Minds," a collection of portraits by student photographer Gabby Scianna. The show opens Friday, Nov. 11 and runs through Sunday, Nov. 27. An artist reception will be held at the Gallery  from 6 to 8 pm, Friday, 11/11.

Included in the show are Ms. Scianna's ten black & white portraits from her "Overcome" series, currently on display. (See blog post below.)

In Scianna's own words: "Behind a beautiful subject lies a beautiful mind, personality, and spirit much deeper and stronger that the struggles they have overcome. 'Beautiful Minds' is a collection of my portraiture, continuing with the theme of 'Overcome.'"

Upon graduation, the Canfield High School senior plans to further her photography study at the Ringling College of Art & Design in Sarasota, Florida.
