The Johnson Center for the Arts will host Second Saturday Studio from 9 a.m. until noon Saturday at Art by the Tracks. 

Local artist Frank Thompson, Troy University will lead the “studio” workshop.

“Frank will hold a master class on how to paint his favorite subject, the humble bovine, with his favorite art tool, the palette knife,” Andrea Pack said.  “This class is a great opportunity, not only to learn from the artist himself, but to socialize with friends, try something new and challenge your inner creative self. And, it’s also an opportunity to learn to let loose and enjoy the process of art.”
