‘Paint & Sip Workshop’

The “Paint & Sip Workshop” will be held from noon to 2 p.m. Friday, Aug. 25, at Gallery Zella in Bryson City.

Enjoy learning to paint with a buddy, daughter, son or even your sweetheart. Take home an incredible memory of your trip to the mountains — your own original painting on canvas. Enjoy a glass of wine (or soft beverage) and a light snack. Your painting instructor Jon Houglum is known as the area's best oil painting teacher. Students will be presented with various visual tools for suggesting background, middle ground and foreground colors which will give the sense of great depth in their paintings.

Cost is $50, which includes all materials. For more information, call 828.488.3638 or visit www.galleryzella.com.
