CASPIAN—Children’s art classes will be held at the Iron County Museum on Thursday, June 27, the day following the Living History Workshop, which is being held Monday to Wednesday.
The first session of the art workshop will start at 10 a.m. Students are asked to bring a bag lunch, as the second session will begin at approximately 1 p.m. The fee for the day is $5, and students should register by calling the museum desk (265-2617) in advance.
Students do not need to bring supplies or equipment, but they may want to come with their own possible example or idea of what they would like to create.
They will be taught the technique of pointillism, where color is applied in small dots. Several examples will be available for them to see. The morning class will teach the technique and start the creation of their own work. The afternoon session will give them time to complete it.
If parents wish to see what the participants have created, they may come at about 3 p.m. The plan is also to have the students exhibit their work at the art show in July.
There will be two teachers for the class, Linda Gene Parker Fayas and Terry Lynn. Both are experienced artists and teachers. They were also members of the group that organized the Museum Art Club after attending the workshop held in 2007, taught by former resident and renowned artist Marlene Ecola Gerburick, a native of Crystal Falls. An art show has been held each summer since then.
