Jennie Sikora-Muehl, a staff art instructor at Center Place, will lead the painting party and will help you create an “Island Paradise” on canvas. Sikora-Muehl said, “Come and celebrate the first day of summer and paint with us.”

Lisa Rodriguez is the marketing director for Center Place Fine Arts. Rodriguez said, “We offer a one-time Paint and Take It to the community to engage them with art. For some residents, they do not have time to take an art class every week.” Rodriguez added, “We are offering this Summer Paint Party to residents seven years and older so that it can be a fun family outing and open up a hands-on opportunity to experience and create.”

Sikora-Muehl is a talented ceramics artist. Rodriguez said, “We are so lucky to have art instructor, Jennie Sikora-Muehl on staff here at Center Place. Jennie is a multi-talented artist that teaches drawing, painting, mixed media and clay. In our summer camp, she is offering a new class called ‘Exploring Mosaics’ where the kids will create a mosaic stepping stone. Jennie continues to create her own beautiful pottery from raw clay, which she then paints and fires. Her work is showcased in several different art galleries throughout the West Coast of Florida.”

The theme for Center Places Summer Paint Party, “Island Paradise,” lends itself to summertime fun. You will not want to miss this opportunity.
