FULTON – CNY Arts Center announces the first unveiling of public programming at their newly converted ARTS in the Heart Studio in downtown Fulton.
Local Painter Bonnie McClellan will offer several adult painting classes each week from January 8 through April 21.
Students can expect to learn McClellan’s version of the traditional wet-on-wet oil technique, a layering of wet paint over previous layers to produce a fast-paced completed project.
Students will take home a finished painting by the end of each session, and will focus on creating traditional landscapes with the incorporation of wildlife.
Each session is three hours long.
McClellan’s painting classes will accommodate all skill levels, and materials are provided by the center.
Along with a traditional learning setting, McClellan designed a weekly “sip and paint” event, where wine and water are available to students so they can relax, socialize, and enjoy their painting.
McClellan will also offer one-on-one consultations and painting “fix-ups.”
Classes are limited to 12-14 people per session, but the variety of classes offered during the sixteen weeks will provide plenty of opportunity for the community to get involved.
Each class has its own registration, so students can choose which sessions they would like to attend.
McClellan is currently a board member at CNY Arts Center, and has taught painting classes since 2012.
“I’m very excited to utilize our downtown location for classes,” said McClellan. “There’s enormous potential for the Fulton community to get actively involved with the arts. I’m proud that my programming is the first offered in the new studio, but I’m more excited to see what the future of this studio will eventually bring to the community.”
CNY Arts Center plans to provide more programming for children and adults in the future.

Arts in the Heart Studio is located at 47 S. First St.
