FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Southern Indiana Center for the Arts Paint the Town social painting event for May will be partnering with the Jackson County Visitors Center in conjunction with their annual tri-county celebration of ArtSplash.
Saturday, May 12, Paint the Town participants will be painting a 17 x 17 pillow cover titled “Proud as a Peacock”.
This vibrant piece of functional art in true peacock colors of sapphire blue and topaz will also be sealed with a flexible varnish to make it suitable for use in the home.
The Paint the Town workshops are held in various interesting locations throughout the region. The May 12 event will be at the Jackson County Visitors Center located in a beautifully restored old train depot in downtown Seymour, Indiana.
Start time will be 10:30 am. Participants are encouraged to bring a sack lunch since it will take approximately 4 hours to complete the painting. The Jackson County Visitors Center is located at 100 N. Broadway St., Seymour. Space is limited and advanced registration is required.
The fee is $30.00 with a 20% discount to SICA members. No artistic experience or talent is required and all materials are included except for the stuffing for the pillow. SICA annual memberships are available at $25 for individuals and $50 for families.
Because this event will be held on the day before Mother’s Day, a $5 discount will be extended to all moms who bring a special guest, or any guests who bring their mothers.
For reservations call SICA at 812-522-2278 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Reservations may also be made at the Art Center Tuesday through Friday noon to 5 pm, and Saturday 11 am to 3 pm.
