Third Thursdays Art Night

Third Thursdays Art Night

The Stark Museum of Art once again welcomes families to make art after dark at Third Thursdays Art Night on Feb. 18 from 5-7 p.m. Admission is free for all Orange County public, private or home school students, grades pre-K-12, wearing school colors or spirit wear. Admission for adults (18-64) is $6; seniors (65 or over) $5; and children 3 years and under are admitted free. Stark Cultural Venues Members will also receive free admission.

The evening will include a fun gallery scavenger hunt to win an art supply prize, displays of local student artwork, studio art activities for all ages, sketching in the galleries, and a hands-on station of touchable objects, all enhanced with the backdrop of music playing in the galleries.

Each Third Thursday also features an interactive demonstration by a local artist. For February, the museum welcomes Chris Jowers of West Orange-Stark, who will demonstrate charcoal drawing with vine charcoal. Jowers is a teacher at West Orange-Stark Elementary, a former graphic artist at several advertising agencies throughout Southeast Texas and southwest Louisiana, and an avid photographer. He is a native of Vinton, Louisiana, and an award-winning graduate of McNeese State University in Lake Charles, Louisiana.

The March Third Thursdays Art Night is planned for March 17.

The Stark Museum is at 712 Green Ave. in Orange. For more information, view or call (409) 886-2787.
