October ‘Sampler Series’ Coming To Arts Center

Southern Indiana Center for the Arts is bringing back their popular sampler series in October. The fall art series will be held every Tuesday in October 6-8:30 pm. This is a perfect opportunity for those who want to try something new. Participants will personalize their own pottery piece, learn how to use a dremel tool when carving a gourd, paint a fall ‘welcome’ slate shingle, and weave a ‘bat’ basket.

Series class price of $75.00 includes all supplies and instruction to complete all four projects in the series. SICA members will receive a 20% discount bringing their price to $60.00.

Class size is limited; pre-registration and prepayment will be required. Reserve your spot by calling Southern Indiana Center for the Arts at 812-522-2278 or e-mail sicatreasurer@frontier.com. Project pictures are available for viewing at www.soinart.com.
