            PAC ART NITE : May 18th | 6:30 - 8:30PM
Florida Landscape :: Inspired by The Florida Highwaymen
Workshop is full.

Come and view the PAC’s significant collection of nostalgic Florida Highwaymen
Landscapes—and create one of your own! Select from a menu of Florida nature motifs
and interpret the Highwaymen style your way. Wendy Marble will guide us on our painting
journey, teaching us techniques she learned by observing Florida Highwayman Al Black.
We will have many landscapes on hand to view for inspiration. For example, the Royal Poinciana often painted by Robert Lewis, the backwaters of Florida by Sam Newton, or
you may want to be original and paint our very own Green Bridge over the Manatee River.
We will be using acrylic paint with pastel chalk details as our mediums.
It’s easy to do and so RICH with color! No prior art experience needed, just the love to play.
We will apply a spray sealer to preserve your paintings at the end of the evening.

Let’s make it a party! Bring a friend and a dish to share.
We will have the music, paints and canvases. Just come ready to relax and unwind.

Friday | May 18th | 6:30 - 8:30PM. Doors open at 6:00PM for mix and mingle.
  Painting workshop begins at 6:30PM. $30 includes all supplies and a complimentary
glass of wine. Cool raffle prizes will be awarded at just $1 per ticket!
A portion of workshop fees benefit the Manatee
County Agricultural Museum and Palmetto Historical Park.
Be sure to visit the Original Highwaymen Show & Sale
on Saturday May 5th at the Museum and Park!

"Thank you for a wonderful evening, it was a blast! My friends all had a great time as well. It was a great way to be able to come together as friends, which is very hard to do sometimes. It gave us something fun to look forward to and we look forward to doing it again in the future." - Charlie Menendez
