Colleen Watchorn taught a FREE painting class on July 17th at the Loewen Green Art Scene located at 306 Reimer Ave. Keep posted on the Steinbach Online events calendar for more FREE classes coming up this summer from 1-3pm!

Here's what Colleen had to say about this week's free class: "What a great turn out for my first free art class of the summer! It was nice to see some new faces, as well as familiar faces from last summer's classes, and the summer arts day camp kids ! I had decided to do a summer landscape picture, with a summer sky, stream and flowers, it's always tricky to know how hard/easy to make the lesson, but after seeing the end results, I think this was a good choice as some very amazing paintings left that day! One great moment would have to be meeting a woman who had never picked up a brush, yet obviously had wanted to for a long time. She really had a natural ability and I hope this class was just the first step in her art journey! Very fun time, looking forward to doing another class in August!"
