COUNTY — The Pickens County Museum of Art and History announced recently that a new art class with instructor Jo Johnston will begin soon, and with sprng now upon us, it is a great time to work in the studio exploring all the possibilities at your fingertips when it comes to sketching, painting, and creating.

The six-week class being held in the Liz Smith-Cox Educational Studio is designed for anyone who wishes to develop an individual project, jump-start a project that has been on hold, or learn some new techniques in a favorite medium. It is also appropriate for beginners who have always wanted to try their hand at drawing or painting. The class will help students get started with lots of helpful basic instructions and a list of supplies. Supplies and formats will be discussed at the first class. Tuition for the class is $88, or $78 for museum members. Pre-registration is required. Tuition must be paid prior to the first class.
