When you think of painting at the lake, it usually means slapping another coat on the deck, dock or side of the cottage.  Tonight, the Clark Lake Yacht Club provided a different interpretation.  Assembled were people who were looking to free the captive artist within. 

Kim Swartz led the group in their quest.  When asked how do you teach people how to paint, her answer was surprising.  “They already know,” she said.


Amy Locke, who is a Yacht Club member, explains why the Club put on the event.


The original plan called for the event to take place at the shoreline, but rain changed the venue.  Fortunately, the Yacht Club great room is a place conducive to events, whether it be to gather after a regatta or to learn about how to be creative with a paint brush.
