On Saturday, June 9 or Saturday, June 23, up to 50 painters follow Cynthia Massey Parsons' brushstrokes to create a masterpiece, using provided painting supplies. Held in the Exhibit Hall gallery of Christopher House Antiques, classes include light snacks with lemonade and tea, a Garden Surprise gift basket stocked with a pack of Parsons' floral greeting cards and other goodies, and certificates of achievement for each painter.
Alabama-born Cynthia Massey Parsons, who will be featured in the 32nd anniversary edition of Who’s Who in American Art, has built her artistic reputation on works in watercolor, acrylic, and graphite. During Paint-A-Long sessions, she leads budding artists through the brushwork of a single painting, helping students pick up sound technique without worrying about inventing a subject or baiting a muse. Her original designs range from modified classics—such as the sky in Van Gogh’s Starry Night transposed over a local skyline—to classic floral still lifes.
