SMAC Thank You Virtual Art Class open to essential workers

Submitted to Branson Globe

Hollister, MO— The Southern Missouri Arts Connection (SMAC) is offering an online class to show its appreciation for essential workers. The class will be streaming live 7 p.m. on Friday, May 15 and will be available for replay for those registered.

Art instructor Jennifer Smythe explains that the class is limited to 25 only because of the supplies, which have to be shipped in. Not knowing how many would be interested in a free class, they limited the order. But if interest exceeds SMAC’s expectations, another class will be scheduled. Smythe, who is experienced in guiding students to paint through their emotions, will teach in a soothing, stress-relieving manner that even a beginner can follow.

“The stress these workers are enduring is high, and we know art can relieve that stress,” she said. “So, we want to make the class available to all who feel they need it.”

Go to the SMAC website to register: https://www.smac-art.org/events and click on the first painting.

For those who do not have their own materials to paint the project, SMAC will provide them. These may be picked up Saturday afternoon, May 9 at the SMAC Art Center, 7 Downing Street, Hollister or by appointment, if necessary. To schedule a pickup contact SMAC at info@smac-art.org. All COVID-19 protocols will be in place at the art center.
