Youths from the Rimbey area are being given another opportunity to break out the paints and brushes and get creative.

The Rimbey Art Club is hosting junior classes to get children interested in art.

“We have had art classes before but there didn’t seem to be a need,” said artist Sharon Johnston. But lately there’s been a bigger demand for student classes, she said.

Art enthusiast Elizabeth Jones is glad there’s finally an art classes for juniors. “I like art. I love to be creative and just have fun, she said. “It’s kind of off-putting to be the only kid in an art class.”

Jones took watercolor lessons from the art club but it wasn’t designed for youths and contained only adults.

So far the art club has only held one class, the second will be Oct. 9. “We’re basically just getting the lessons ready for the kids,” said Johnston.

The art classes are held Tuesday from 4 to 5:30 p.m. at the Rimbey Community Centre until Nov. 27.
