Fellowship celebrates creativity

Thursday, September 13, 2012 by The Press in Local News

Residents and staff of Fellowship Community displayed their artistic creations during the second annual Art in the Park event Aug. 18.

The campus recently experienced a surge in artistic interests as a result of painting classes that became available earlier this year. The classes, taught by local artist and educator Gene Allen, cover techniques in a variety of mediums including watercolors and acrylics.

While the outdoor exhibit began as a venue for paintings, other mediums made their way into the spotlight.
