Lake Orion Classes Teach Children to Paint and Draw

Natural Awakenings News: Painting Like the Masters

Orion Center will host two kinds of children’s art classes in October and November for residents and nonresidents of Lake Orion. All classes are intended for children ages 7 and up. They will be held in Orion Center’s Art & Craft Room.

On Thursday, October 29, Thursday, November 19 and December 10 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m., Painting Like the Masters classes will focus on the styles of various masters: Rembrandt on October 29, Rauol Dufy on November 19 and Sulamith Wulfing on December 10.

Starting Monday, November 2, and running once a week through November 23, Monday Is My Drawing Day, held from 6:30 to 8 p.m., will build students’ drawing skills using images from nature.

“If your child is constantly sketching, the passion has already begun! It’s time to feed that fire with practice of various techniques, individual instruction, time to concentrate, the making of mistakes and growth in abilities,” says Pamela Palmer of The Artist’s Apprentice, who will lead the youth art classes.

Painting Like the Masters classes cost $20 for residents and $25 for nonresidents. Monday Is My Drawing Day costs $60 for residents and $65 for nonresidents, plus a $15 materials fee due at the start of the class.

Orion Center is located at 1335 Joslyn Rd., Lake Orion. For more information or to register, call Orion Township Parks and Recreation at 248-391-0304 ext. 3500 or visit their website:
