Gallery plans art instruction for young and old

Abstract artist M. Allison Sacra will offer a demonstration Thursday, May 19, and a full-day workshop May 24, both sponsored by Highland Art Guild & Gallery in Marble Falls. Instruction for budding artists is planned in June.

Workshops for young and old are on the upcoming calendar of the Highland Arts Guild & Gallery.
To be offered at their gallery at 318 Main Street, Marble Falls, are: an abstract painting workshop on Tuesday, May 24; the Summer Art Adventure for ages 11-14 years, June 6-10 (registration deadline May 30), and Summer Art Camp for ages 8-12, June 20-24 (registration deadline June 3).
Artist M. Allison Sacra will give a free abstract painting demonstration at Highland Arts Gallery in Marble Falls from 9:30-11:30 a.m. on Thursday, May 19, to be followed by her workshop May 24.
Sacra, who is soon to open her own Olio Art Gallery in Horseshoe Bay, is offering the one-day workshop in abstract landscapes for $90.
“I paint in many styles with varying subjects,” said Sacra. “I deem my style as abstract realism. They are fun and splashy, conveying a freeing attitude enticing the viewer to feel the same.
“Painting my figures is exciting for me, faceless, yet with a face” the artist continued. “I want the viewers to look into their souls and wonder—what are these people thinking, what is on their mind, what is their attitude?”
