An international artist and teacher is sharing her talents in Meridian this week.
Brenda Harris is leading a 3-day instructional seminar at Meridian Activity Center at the invitation of the Artist Pallet Club of East Central Mississippi.
Students from as far away as South Africa and Japan are here to learn different styles of painting. Harris says painting is good for the soul and uplifts others who view the art.
"It's a little frustrating sometimes when you're first starting because you're unsure of yourself," said Harris But once you get that confidence, it''s just a layer of paint. If you don't like the first layer, it dries quickly because we work in acrylic. It's water-based, non-toxic, healthy. And you just go right over it and put you another layer."
The painting seminar continues Friday and Saturday. For more information, call the center during business hours at 601-485-1810.
