Art Workshop

Wednesday, June 22, 7-9 p.m. | Fellowship Hall.


Let’s gather for some creative fun and fellowship with Durham artist  Eleatta Diver, who teaches and leads art parties around town. No prior art skill is necessary! Each participant will be given an 11×14 canvas. After reflecting on meaningful scriptures, participants will be guided as they learn simple ways of creating artful text using pencils, Sharpies and paint. Eleatta will demonstrate a beautiful method of adding subtle color and texture within the letters’ spaces.

For a fee of $15, all materials and instruction are provided. Consider coming with a meaningful phrase or scripture for your art-making.

Registration is open and closes June 20.  This is a wonderful event for inviting friends and neighbors for a women’s night out.  Contact: Margaret Frothingham
