PIQUA — Interested in learning guitar and watercolor on a budget? Piqua Arts Council has you covered, and then some. Their brand-new event, Art 4 Everyone, features eight different art-learning stations with guitar, watercolor, cake decorating, acrylic pouring, origami, drawing, printmaking and pastels. In addition to these art opportunities, PAC has worked alongside three local businesses in creating 3D works of art, each representative of their work, that will be auctioned off at the end of the night. Dinner by Mrs. B’s Catering and a cash bar will also be available.
Jimmy Felts has been playing guitar since he was 8 years old, starting his own band at just 12. By the time he was 21, Felts became a full-time musician and guitar instructor and he’s been touring, playing at events & venues and teaching guitar ever since. “At 68 I am still a student of the guitar,” said Felts. “I am blessed to have turned my passion into a career that I have never grown tired of.”
Felts currently performs at events and venues all across Miami County and beyond, including our 2021 Sounds of the Season Holiday Concert, various events in Troy, this year’s Annual International Play Music On The Porch Day and more. You can learn more about Felts and his music on his website at www.jimmyfelts.com.
