[April 11, 2013]  ELKHART -- Dragonfly Art Studio & Gallery is planning special events during Elkhart's "Celebrate Spring!" weekends. The art studio is on the upper floor of the refurbished 1889 building at 102 Gov. Oglesby St. in downtown Elkhart.

The studio is having an art exhibition and open house every Saturday in April from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Artist and owner Renee Sisk's beautiful original paintings, and those of her students, adorn the walls of the studio. The second-story windows provide a great view of Elkhart's historic downtown.

There is no charge for viewing the exhibition.

Sisk is also offering classes with a flower theme at the studio every weekend in April to complement Elkhart's spring events. This Saturday, "Painting the Jack-in-the-Pulpit" with acrylic on canvas is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. "Painting the Purple Coneflower" watercolor class will be offered April 20 from 1 to 4 p.m., and "Painting the Blue Flag Iris" on glass for a stained-glass look will be on April 27 from 10 a.m. to noon. Sisk will lead your family, group or weekend guests in an inspired and enjoyable experience creating paintings that you didn't think you'd ever be able to draw.
