“ Alan Rauch, fine artist Instructor.”
Painting classes at Penn Highlands Community College Embrace the studies of Impressionism, nearly abstract, almost realism, conceptual, bold brush strokes, fast, loose painting, how to create textural, layered surfaces, and designing with values, translating values to color, the proper uses of color, turning off the brain, turning on the self. Have fun being an artist.

The public is invited to meet the artisans and learn about their unique art-making processes, including hands-on-activities. Featured will be keynote speaker, Melinda Zonger, of the National Museum of the American Coverlet. The Somerset Historical Center will also present a historical flax-scutching demonstration. Act 48 credits will be available to PA. Art Educators for this event. Call Laurel Arts (814-443-2433) to reserve a box lunch and admission ticket.
During a Makers Market July 8 and 9 (part of Somerfest 2017), fiber artists will be invited to showcase and sell their work under the large tent.. More information and vendor applications are available at www.laurelarts.org or by calling the arts center.
The culminating fibers event will be a juried exhibition, August 21 through September 23, 2017. Fiber artists are encouraged to submit work to Laurel Arts from Thursday, August 10 through Saturday, August 12, 2017.
