July marks our first full month back in the Cultural Corner building located at 424 Locust St. We have a variety of classes this month, including yarn painting, which is a fun and colorful art that is especially suitable for children between the ages of 5-12, and is open to all ages. The first of our two-part class series 'The Art of Coffee' will take place on Tuesday, June 19, with a painting class in which students will use different dilutions of coffee (they are very similar to  watercolors) to paint a sepia-toned scene. This is a very unique class that you do not want to miss! We also have introductory classes for woodcarving and stained glass scheduled to start on Thursday, July 14, and a Mommy & Me Painting Party for July 26.  Beginning Stained Glass with Vilma Holt: Learn the basics of stained glass! Throughout this 3-session class, participants will learn how to create patterns, cut glass, foil and solder while working on their own stained glass panel, much like the one pictured.  This is a beginners' level class, so no previous experience with stained glass is necessary. This class will meet Thursday, July 14, 21 and August 4 from 6-8 p.m. at the Cultural Corner Art Guild & Gallery. Cost for this class is $25 for members and $35 for non-members, plus  a $25 materials fee.
