    Southern Indiana Center for the Arts is pARTnering with Chateau de Pique Winery, 6361 N County Road 760 E, Seymour, for their April Paint the Town to be held on Sunday, April 13th from 1:00-4:00 pm. “We know that social painting events are becoming very popular and we want those in our community to know that you don’t have to travel far or spend lots of money to participate. SICA strives to provide participants with a wonderful art experience and promote the flavor of local businesses,” said instructor, Darnell Dukes. “We enjoy helping the first time student with their painting and hope they will want to return for another art experience with friends. Stephanie and I try very hard to incorporate a new technique almost every month into our paintings.”

    “Sky scenes featuring sunrises or sunsets and water scenes are always appealing to people. This painting is done in soften hues of blue, pink and yellow. We like this painting because it appeals to men and women,” added instructor, Stephanie Mysak.

    Class price for the 16” x 20” painting is $30.00 and includes all supplies and instruction. SICA members will receive a 20% discount. Alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages are available to purchase from Chateau de Pique. Class size is limited; preregistration and prepayment are recommended to reserve your spot. Sign up deadline is noon, April 11th.
