The Shortgrass Art Institute and the Southern Prairie Library System are offering a new art class, “Get Artsy for the Holidays,” with Lyn Taylor. The class is scheduled for Aug. 25, 26 & 28 from 6 to 9 p.m. Cost of the class is $30. No experience is necessary and it promises to be a fun class for all. Sign up early as this class is sure to fill up fast. Art works will be completed during the class.
It is never too early to get ready for the holiday seasons and with the “big three,” approaching fast, it is not to early get started on those decorations for our homes. It may be a hundred degrees outside today, but in just over two months Halloween will be here. After Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas quickly follow. So with that in mind, make plans to sign up for the new class at the Altus Public Library. Using Prismacolor pencils, inks and gouache, students will design art works to decorate their homes.
Lyn’s workshops fill fast. Lyn brings a wealth of talent and education to her workshops. Her education includes attending the Colorado Institute of Art in Visual Communications and Graphic Design, Cameron University and Southwestern State University. She has attended numerous seminars and workshops across the country with such noted artists as Doug Dawson and Ramon Killey. She is a member of the CPSA, Hawaii Watercolor Society. Lynda has also used her artistic talents to create illustrated brochures, designed ad campaigns, stationery and menus for restaurants in Honolulu and provided illustrations and brochures for technical seminars and products. Lynda also does freelance work for Hallmark.
