TAMAQUA, SCHUYLKILL COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU-TV) If you love all things fall and art the Tamaqua Arts Center has the event for you.
Eyewitness News Reporter Anja Whithehead takes us there.
The Tamaqua Community Arts Center is bringing people together through their fall art projects.
“All the projects would be something that anyone can try and do and be successful,” added Sharon Chromiak. Party Night Teacher
The event features four hands-on projects.
There will be wreath making, slate painting, sugar skulls, and chalk art which is specific to the art center.
“We use prismacolor pencils, which are made of wax. And do several layers of penciling on it to create the design. Once the pencils hit the wood it’s grainy it looks like chalk, so hence chalk art.” said Amy Mogish, Party Night Teacher
This event is a good chance for people to see what the art center offers year-round and be able to try something new.
“What I think I love most is seeing how happy people are coming in the door thinking they can’t accomplish a specific project and then they leave having something that they’re thrilled that they made with their own two hands,” said Leona Rega, Tamaqua Community Arts Center Director.
Being around this group, some teachers, some students, gives you the creative energy to participate, no matter your skill set
“You follow a pattern and everything is guided step by step and by the time you’re finished you look at it and can’t believe you did it,” noted Tracy Richardson, Art Student,.
Our Anja Whitehead even got into fun and creativity!
You can register for the event that will be held on October 25 by heading to the “Tamaqua Arts Center” on Pine Street.
