Congrats to Sherry Thurston!

Congratulations to Sherry Thurston on her recent retirement from the Onslow County School system as Art teacher at Dixon High School.

But... that's not all...

Her painting "My Beach House" was recently featured on the cover of the Topsail Advertiser.

But.. that's not all...
She (along with several other OOPS artists... more details coming soon) will have three paintings exhibited in the reinCARnation Exhibit at the Wayne County Arts Council in July.
But that's not all...
She's teaching art classes! Here's a note from her with her schedule of classes...
Just retired from teaching in public schools and now it's time to focus on painting and teaching in Thurston Art Gallery! Call for a schedule on classes in Sneads Ferry. (910-526-9988 cell) or(910-327-1781). We can do morning classes or evening. Adults and Children classes, limited space so call early.

Also I wanted to let you and your friends know I will be teaching some acrylic painting classes for beginners and intermediates at Michael’s in Jacksonville this summer.

Michael's and Chartpak have partnered to offer a wonderful deal on painting supplies, coupons and classes which I will be teaching soon. The products are by Grumbacher assuring quality. These classes will be fun even with your first try. It takes time and practice to paint but in the two hour classes you will have the basics down so you can do your first landscape! Floral paintings will be the second set of classes. Dates will be forthcoming.
Demo at Michael's of Jacksonville, Sunday June 27th at 1pm
1st class 10 to 12 noon on Wednesday, July 7th
2nd class 6 to 8pm on Thursday, July 22nd
Hope you can come, love to see you there. Limited space so sign up early at Michael's at the front desk. Ask for the landscape class taught by Sherry Thurston. Thanks
