Summer Painting Parties

Posted: May 26, 2015

Guest artist Cyndi Kortbein from The Paint Shack returns to CVM this summer for three brand new offerings.  The first is designed specifically for kids. Children ages 6-12 will join Cyndi as she teaches them how to paint their own masterpieces, along with decorating a fun "Picasso Cupcake" for a snack! The featured painting, "Keep Dreaming" is a colorful rendition of a dreamcatcher, complete with wispy feathers and beads.

The second and third sessions are intended for adults. Participants attending the second session will be guided through the steps of creating a beautiful sunset landscape reminiscent of nearby Half Moon Lake. The third and final session will focus on a related scene featuring cattails, suggestive of those growing in Carson Park upon the shores of Braun's Bay!

Mark your calendar for the following schedule:

Wednesday, July 8th, 10:00-11:30 am: Picturing the Past (children's painting party). Featured Painting, "Keep Dreaming."

Tuesday, July 14th, 6:00-8:30 pm: Adult Painting Party. Featured work, "Sunset at Half Moon Lake."

Tuesday, August 18th, 6:00-8:30 pm: Adult Painting Party. Featured work, "Cattails of Carson Park."

Advanced registration for all three offerings is required, as space is limited. Cost for either adult program is $30 for CVM members, or $35 for non-members.  The painting party for children will be held as part of the museum's weekly summer series for school-aged youth, which carry their own fees. Please contact Karen Jacobson at 715-834-7871 or for details or for further information.
