"I have never painted before....I can't even paint my toenails!" If these are your thoughts, this event is perfect for you. We also welcome those of you with an artistic streak. Looking for something fun to do to chase away those winter blahs? Come paint "owl on the Prowl" with us in this no-experience-needed private painting class. About the artist/instructor: Glenn McDowell, "Every person in this miracle of a world is born with creativity flowing through their veins. It is only along the way through life experiences and trial and error, that we begin to close ourselves to the notion that we have the ability to be creative. My goal is to help each and everyone of you find the creativity within yourself again." McDowell is a local artist and musician. He graduated Western with an art degree in painting. He has been involved in many shows around Kalamazoo and in Chicago. His favorite art mediums stretch from pastels and watercolor to acrylic. McDowell's inspiring and upbeat personality will spark your creative fire!
