Free Painting Class - Tuesdays at Turchin (Students Only)

The Tuesdays at Turchin Free Painting Class is for Appalachian students only.

The Turchin Center will open its studio space every Tuesday to Appalachian students to learn a new skill by a professional artist. All supplies provided and no experience necessary. 

This semester's guest artist is Tunde Afolayan Famous who will be teaching a painting class.

We can only allow a maximum of 30 students into the Free Painting Class due to limited space in TCVA 3200.
