Arts Academy: Little Masters

NCLAC Arts Academy presents a brand new class, perfect for budding artists. Little Masters is a fun mix of art history and art making for children ages 6-10. Each Saturday, your child will learn about an artist, then create a personal masterpiece in that artist's style! Local artist and NCLAC staff member, Russell Pirkle, will be teaching the class. Pirkle holds a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Art from Louisiana Tech University, and is currently enrolled in the English Education Master's Degree program. Pirkle has chosen four fascinating artists for the class: Jackson Pollock, Georgia O'Keeffe, Pablo Picasso and Piet Mondrian.

Little Masters will meet from 10am - 12pm on Saturdays: October 8, 15, and 22 and 29. The fee is $60 for NCLAC members, $80 for non-members. Supplies will be provided. Space is limited for this exciting, hands-on class, so register today! Call 255-1450, or email us at
