Through a unique collaboration, the Town of Florence is partnering with The Florence Industrial Development Authority to utilize the historic Suter House for arts and culture programming beginning in 2017. The collaboration is the result of long-range planning by the Town’s Arts and Culture Commission to offer arts and culture programming in a distinctive setting.
Through the Florence Parks and Recreation Department, the partnership is kicking off the New Year with two new programs by art instructor Louis Mendoza.
In the Pastel Workshop, Mr. Mendoza will guide students in creating a simple scene such as a landscape. He will provide the supplies, pastels and paper. The workshop will be held on Thursday, January 19, from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. Cost is $32 per participant for residents and $48 per participant for non-residents. Deadline to register is Thursday, January 12.
In the Drawing Class, Mr. Mendoza will focus more on the techniques of drawing. This class will be presented in a series of three classes from 6:00 p.m.- 8:00 p.m. each week, beginning on Thursday, February 16 and continuing through March 2. Cost is $41 per participant for residents and $62 per participant for non-residents. Students will need to purchase their own supplies for the class. Deadline to register is Thursday, February 9.
