Spaces are still available in a series of adult art programs offered by the OSU Extension Service in Tillamook, covering painting, writing and ceramics.
In “Express yourself with Acrylics,” instructor Christine Harrison shows students different ways to start planning a painting and complete it. Students will learn about new mediums and ways to experiment with acrylics. This class runs from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm each Saturday from Jan. 13 through March 3 at the Art Accelerated Gallery, 1906 Third Street. There is a $25 supplies fee in addition to the registration fee.
“Express yourself through Writing” runs on Wednesdays, from Jan. 17 through Feb. 28, aimed at helping students find their own publishing and communication niche. Tillamook author and blogger Neal Lemery will show students how to start a blog, build it and maintain it. Discussions will include guest blogging, marketing a blog, using Facebook, Twitter and other social media, as well as starting a website. The class runs from 6:30 to 8 pm at the OSU Extension Computer Lab, Room 102, 4506 Third Street.
Amber Whishoff will teach “Express Yourself! Smashing Plates & Give New Life to the Shards” each Wednesday from Jan. 10 to 31. Students will employ the “pique assiette” tradition to repurpose pottery shards of various sizes and shapes into new mosaic art. Classes will run from 6 to 8 pm at the Art Accelerated Gallery, 1906 Third Street.
