Each painting is $99, and have been hand painted by the following artists:
In addition to the art show, the Payson Senior Citizen Center would also like to invite other seniors to paint with them on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the center from 8-4 pm.
There, they enjoy visiting and painting each week while putting their home responsibilities aside for a day or two. Everyone brings their own paints and works on paintings that they are wanting to paint such as animals, landscapes, portraits, and abstracts. Most people paint in oil, but some paint in watercolor and acrylic.
There are two teachers that assist artists with critiques, questions, and expertise in all mediums. Krystal Meldrum teaches on Tuesdays and specializes in acrylic and oil. Kathryn Carbine teaches on Thursdays and specializes in gorgeous watercolor
