Looking for a new art medium to explore? Join us for the Bleach Works Class! After drawing a basic design on colorful paper, areas of the paper is bleached out. The effect causes a variety of different hues. Then the image is embellished with acrylic paint and vibrant colored pencils resulting in designs reminiscent of Molas (Central American textile patterns).

Most supplies will be provided, however, each student must bring their own brushes for the acrylic paint (but not the bleach solution) as well as a set of colored pencils.

Instructor: Leith Howard DeWeese
Cost: $60
Date/Time: Sat. Sept. 12th 9 am - 4pm
Held at ArtSpot inside of Flicks

Leith Howard DeWeese has been a math and art teacher for over 30 years in three states (she currently teaches at the Opheim Public School). Her mediums of choice include acrylics, colored pencil, clay, silver, and stone. She has exhibited her artwork at the ArtSpot Gallery, the James Memorial in Williston, and most recently in Billings at St. Johns.


Spend an afternoon painting the brilliant colors of fall along the Cherry Creek. Afterwards, relax in twilight with a decadent five course Thai dinner, served outdoors under a canopy of trees and festive décor.
Plein-Air Painting (or, painting “in the open air”) is a wonderful way to absorb oneself in the landscape. The class will cover basic composition, color mixing, working within a frame , all of which will all culminate in your own acrylic painting. This is a great class for beginners.

Thai food is created by using all five flavors – spicy, sweet, salty, bitter, and sour. The unique cuisine is beautiful to the eye and pleasing to the tongue. Half way through your Plein-Air experience, enjoy Thai appetizers, salad, and delicious beverages. After the class we’ll dine outside on Pad Thai, green curry, and mango sticky rice under a canopy of trees and festive décor.

Supplies, meals, refreshments, décor and ambience provided.
Enrollment is limited to a maximum of 10 participants.
