Fair Park Senior Center welcomes back Cindy Howson with the Fairfield Glade Art Guild. This Friday, Jan. 31, Cindy will be teaching an acrylic pours class. This class is one of the most talked about classes, and the art is beautifully unique. These pictures are often bold and vibrant and loose, but can also be gentle, detailed or transparent. This endless variety of results depends on the artist and the amount of control or lack of control that is exerted on the medium.
Howson’s love of art started at the age of 3, with crayons. She remembers, as a child always being the teacher with her cousins and emphasized to always stay in the lines. With time she expanded her art expressions to ceramics, jewelry art, oil, and acrylic then finally settled into oil painting.
This all changed when she moved to Fairfield Glade and met a few ladies at the Art Guild. Since then, she has opened herself to many different mediums. She entered her first judged show in October 2017 and took third place with one of her acrylic pours. Cindy believes that it is never too late to learn new fun expressions of art. This class is full at this time, please call Fair Park Senior Center at 931-484-7416 to be put on the waiting list.
