|New The Painted Room I Class Offered For Adults on Jan. 21|
Adults can learn to make any room in their house "pop" using color and texture through a new class being offered by the Johnson County Park and Recreation District.
The class is called The Painted Room I and is for adults 16 and older. Participants will explore the world of color and the art of faux finishes and will get some hands-on experience as they learn simple techniques of sponging, ragging, color wash, stria, and stenciling. Class members should bring a soft, lint-free rag to the first class, wear old clothes, and be prepared to get their hands dirty! Search for the keyword "art" to find this program in the JCPRD's Activities Catalog and online listings.
This program will meet at 10 a.m. Saturday beginning Jan. 21 at the Roeland Park Community Center, 4850 Rosewood, Roeland Park. The cost for two two-hour sessions is $22 for Johnson County residents or $24 for nonresidents. In addition, there is a supply fee of $15, payable to the instructor.
An advanced class, called The Painted Room II, will be offered beginning Feb. 18 and will cover advanced faux finishes.
