The Clarksville Parks & Recreation Department is offering the next one-day session of its latest Saturday arts program, the Cumberland Arts Experience. The session will be held at the Kleeman Community Center, 166 Cunningham Lane.
The Cumberland Arts Experience will be held May 25, and will teach basic painting skills as participants paint along with an instructor to create a piece of art they can take home with them. Each month features a different painting, all inspired by things and places in the Cumberland region, so the classes will never be the same! Cost of this program is $35 per class and includes all supplies such as paint and canvas.
The Cumberland Arts Experience is much more than a painting class, it’s a well-rounded night of fun as participants will be treated to light music, “mocktails” and food tastings from local chef Kristina Waters.
Classes will take place once a month from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Kleeman Community Center. Pre-registration for the Cumberland Arts Experience is required and available online at recpro.cityofclarksville.com. If you can’t make the May class, other sessions will be held June 22 and July 27.
