Museum in the Park at Chief Logan State Park continues fall art workshops on Oct. 8

The Museum in the Park at Chief Logan State Park will continue its fall art workshop series for children and adults on Saturday, Oct. 8., 2005. Classes for children will be held from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. and classes for adults will be held from 2 - 5 p.m. The workshops are free and open to the public.

Children of all ages are invited to bring a pumpkin and spend the morning decorating it. They will be using paint, felt, yarn and other materials to create their own Halloween decoration. Because of the nature of the activity, children should wear their play clothes and bring a smock. Adults must accompany all children.

The adult workshop (ages 16 and over), “Introduction to Drawing,” will continue in the afternoon session. Participants will be working with charcoal on paper. The adult workshops are limited to 15 participants, and are on a first-come, first-served basis. Those interested are encouraged to call and reserve a spot.

Classes will be taught by Adam Hodges, programming specialist for the Museum. Hodges has taught adult courses in art at Marshall University, Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, Mich., and the Huntington Museum of Art, and served as an assistant for the Huntington Museum of Arts’s Art Day Camp for Kids for three years.

For more information about the fall art workshop series, contact Hodges at (304) 792-7229 or by e-mail at adam.hodges@hotmail.com.
