On Location Fundraiser at Lacawac - Spirited Art of Scranton
Sunday June 25th

Spirited Art Scranton is an optimistic, creative painting class for folks who want to learn the basics of acrylic painting in the company of great friends and good wine. In each class we will show you step-by-step how to create your own masterpiece that you can be proud of and take home at the end. Don’t worry if you can’t even draw a stick person. Our painting classes help you learn while you have fun; and if you know your letters, shapes and colors then you are prepared to learn how to paint! We will be painting a work created by Heidi Van Leuven based on her residency at Lacawac Sanctuary. Enjoy an afternoon in nature. There will be a short hike during the class. A portion of the proceeds will go to benefit Lacawac Sanctuary!
