Art class fees go to nonprofit

Penn Valley painter Nancy Hamilton will distribute half the proceeds from her public art class Sunday at the Empire Mine State Historic Park (10791 E. Empire, Grass Valley) to a nonprofit group designated by students.

From 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., Hamilton will present an art overview and help students render different objects.

“I thought it would be nice for artists to get together and talk about the various mediums and learn something,” said Hamilton, who has taught painting for almost 13 years.

“Actually work with nature, instead of sitting in a classroom like a bunch of canned salmon,” she said.

Students will meet at the state park’s parking lot between 9:30 and 10 a.m. Bring a bag lunch, sketch pad and pencil, and, if desired, any work to discuss. Class fee is $35 per person.

Hamilton won Best of Show at this year’s Nevada County Fair for her acrylic picture of a fox, “Night Watcher.”

Call Hamilton at 370-3807 for information.
