Get in the holiday spirit while learning to paint landscapes

ASHEBORO (Sept. 17, 2021)

Have you thought about what Christmas cards you’re going to send out to family and friends this year? How about sending out something you created? In Randolph Community College’s “Painting the Landscape in Oils and Acrylic, Henry Bowers will not only help you develop your drawing and painting skills in the studio, but also help you create Christmas cards.

A professional artist and local historian, Bowers has been painting for his entire adult life. He has studied with several nationally-recognized painters, including Ellena Basa and John Seerey-Lester. Bowers’ goal is to save the ever-changing historical North Carolina landscape for future generations through his paintings. He was recognized as the 2013 North Carolina Historian of the Year for his efforts in historical preservation.
