If taking a class or learning a skill was not already part of your plan for 2019, add it to the list. Kentuck is offering a variety of art classes this year that will allow you to check off at least one thing from those New Year’s Resolutions. Whether you already dabble a bit in artistic creations, or you’re still trying to tap into your creativity, there is something for you that will set free the artist inside.
In the spirit of giving, three Tuscaloosa county organizations are coming together this holiday season to further implement each of their missions in the community. Kentuck Art Center, who orchestrated this collaboration, paid more than $2,000 to the University of Alabama's Chapter of Habitat for Humanity and Black Warrior Model Railroad Club.
Do you know an artist in need? Kentuck Art Center & Festival, in partnership with Tuscaloosa City Schools, is offering seven need-based scholarships to kids ages 8-12 for Imagination & Enrichment Summer Art Camp, instructed by Studio Artist Sydney Gruber.
The 46th Annual Kentuck Festival of the Arts was held Oct. 21 and 22 at Kentuck Park. The annual festival drew thousands to Northport to enjoy the sights and sounds of one of the South's premiere art fairs. Hundreds of folk, visionary and contemporary artists and craftspeople presented their work. Many of the artists offered live demonstrations as well.
