Pumpkin Paint Party Sept. 26 at Carriage Factory Art Gallery

Pumpkin Paint Party

Pumpkins are the subject matter for a paint party open to the
public Saturday, Sept. 26, 7-9 p.m., at Carriage Factory Art
Gallery, 128 E. Sixth St., Newton. Sue Bechtel will show participants how
to paint with acrylics on 16 x 20 canvases. Reservations are needed.

A paint party with instructor and all supplies included will be open to the public Saturday evening, Sept. 26, 7 to 9 p.m., at Carriage Factory Art Gallery, 128 E. Sixth St., Newton. Instructor Sue Bechtel will lead participants in creating 16 x 20 acrylic paintings of pumpkins.

“Sue is great at helping participants follow the style she has set for the image, but she also helps those who want to paint ‘outside the box’ using different colors or whatever they want to do,” said gallery director Cindy Snider. “The idea is to have fun and enjoy the creativity.”

The cost for instruction and supplies for the Sept. 26 event is $35 per person.

In addition to paint parties that are open to the public, private bookings are also available for both adults and children.

For more information or to make reservations, contact the gallery at 316-284-2749.
