Muralist and teacher, Angela Carstens, will be teaching an art class at the Okefenokee Heritage Center September 8th. From 2 pm – 4 pm students can be introduced to the world of art and leave with a masterpiece.

“We really wanted to bring art to everyone, and what better way than through a fun evening where everyone leaves with something beautiful,” said OHC Director Elizabeth Simpson.

Students can register online for the $35 class. A canvas, easel, paint, and instruction will be provided, and guests are encouraged to bring their own refreshments. Space is limited but there are still some tickets available.

“Art is a great way to express yourself and feel empowered,” Simpson said. “What a great way to share a piece of yourself with your friends and family.”

Contact the Okefenokee Heritage Center at 912-285-4260 or email to register for the class today.
