The Sky’s the Limit painting workshop March 19 at The Varsity Gallery
CARBONDALE – Get ready for one of the most exciting events of the century with this painting workshop. “The Sky’s the Limit” will celebrate the coming of the total solar eclipse, when Southern Illinois will be at the center of all the action.
Mary Krainak Patterson will teach the workshop, which will focus on the eclipse, the universe, the galaxy and space. Patterson, who recently led the successful “Brighten Up Your Life” pet painting workshop at the gallery, is an artist and longtime Murphysboro High School art teacher.
Participants can use any of the images Mary will bring with her to pattern their paintings, or they can bring an image they would like to duplicate in their paintings. The paintings will be completed on an 18×24-inch canvas.
The workshop will take place from 2 to 4:30 p.m. Sunday, March 19. The cost is $35 and includes all materials, a glass of sangria and snacks. Wine will be available for purchase.
Pre-registration and ticket purchase is required by Friday, March 17. Go to The Varsity Center’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/VarsityCenter/Events to sign up for email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The Varsity Gallery is at 418 S. Illinois Ave., Carbondale.
