This Cork and Canvas will be a morning of mimosas and painting in a relaxed atmosphere facilitated by a trained instructor. Each participant goes home with a finished work of art. All materials, including canvasses, paint, brushes, and aprons, are provided. Beverages and snacks will be complimentary.

For April’s Cork and Canvas, students will celebrate Savor Blowing Rock by creating art based on Vincent Van Gogh’s Blossoming Almond Tree (1890).

A full refund will be issued if participant cancels 72 hours prior to the event. For cancellations made less than 72 hours prior to the event, BRAHM will issue a refund IF the museum is able to fill the vacated spot.

Carole Childers formally studied art as an undergraduate at Ohio University, where she earned her BFA. She did graduate work in art education and worked as an art instructor for 34 years in public and private schools and universities. She currently teaches private lessons and adults with disabilities at Caldwell Community College and Technical Institute. What she enjoys most about being an artist and teacher is that she is constantly involved in learning ever more about art and improving her skills as an artist while bringing joy to her own life and the lives of others. She is the former president of the Brush and Palette Club and a current member of the High Country Water Media Society, Foothills Art Guild, and the Brush and Palette Club. Her art has been exhibited throughout Caldwell and Watauga counties.
